About the Author

Colman McCarthy, a syndicated columnist for the Washington Post for nearly thirty years, is the cofounder and director of The Center for Teaching Peace. He is the author of seven previous books and editor of three. His articles have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Nation, The Progressive, The New Republic, The Atlantic, and National Catholic Reporter.


"Formerly a Washington Post columnist and editorial writer, Colman McCarthy is the leading teacher and promoter of peace studies in America, which is why few Americans have heard of him. But ten thousand high school and college students and prison inmates know him and will never forget the impact of his memorable exchanges over the historic morality and function of nonviolence to head off wars and other forms of violence. This book pulsates with thoughtful letters from his students and McCarthy's fascinating responses. Rush this book to your children's schools and raise a generation of Americans who are motivated to wage peace to resolve conflicts. This is a book like no other and, like words of wisdom and importance, it is graced with humor and wit and phrases you'll want to use with other human beings." --Ralph Nader "Colman is a no-prisoners peacemaker: no compromise with violence and no compromise with war. Read the book, but better still, live the life of peace to which he beckons us all." --Timothy P. Shriver, Chairman and CEO of the Special Olympics "When I visit Washington, one of my delights is spending time with Colman McCarthy and his students. This book brings to life the work of a caring teacher who loves his students with the same passion he brings to the classroom in his courses on pacifism and nonviolence. A singular and credible work sure to inspire and endure." --Joan Baez
