Speaking Their Peace
By

Rating
Wars dehumanize. This book humanizes. To those who have been silenced by the trauma of conflict, gagged by fear and conformity, and muted by the world's indifference, this book gives a voice. And it is an unforgettable voice: powerfully, intimately human, heart-wrenching and heart-warming in equal measure, singing a song of horror and of hope. Packed with eighty riveting interviews from eleven conflict zones around the globe, Speaking Their Peace lets "ordinary" people tell their own extraordinary stories of life during wartime and their efforts to build a better, more peaceful life for themselves, their families, and their societies. This emotionally compelling book puts a human face on the news reports that usually skim the surface of the trauma of violent conflict. Speaking Their Peace will change the way you think about how people cope with war and the transition from war to peace.

And it needs to be heard by all of us."--Manal Omar, author of Barefoot in Baghdad "Illustrates, at the most basic level, how important peacemaking and peacekeeping are, and how difficult ...
