Through these 15 intimate conversations, Elise Boulding, an American Quaker, and Daisaku Ikeda, a Japanese Buddhist, reveal that while journeys in peace may build from vastly divergent locales and traditions, shared wisdom grows from an unwavering commitment to a better world. Throughout the book, they explore the dynamic qualities of peace cultures, including peace building as a continuum from the family to global institutions, the valuing of women’s contributions at all levels of society, and education as a holistic, lifelong process. Unique in their fresh connections between Buddhist humanism and a Quaker vision of peace, the conversations enable readers to understand peace and peacemaking not as abstract concepts, but as attitudes and practices that inform every aspect of human life.
