Description

A tool for meaningful and lasting social change toward a genuine culture of peace.

Educating for a Culture of Peace, co-edited by Riane Eisler and Ron Miller, with contributions by leading educators as well as Raffi, the famous Children’s Troubadour, shows how values of compassion, caring, respect, and welcoming of human diversity can be modeled and taught.

The authors tell moving stories of their caring and peaceful engagement with their students and explain the educational and social implications of these interactions. Congruent with co-editor Riane Eisler’s cultural transformation theory, Educating for a Culture of Peace is a tool for meaningful and lasting social change toward a genuine culture of peace.
