I feel so very blessed to have read Great Peacemakers. Yes, blessed indeed.
~ Betty Williams, President and founder, World Centers of Compassion for Children International and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
Powerful, well-researched and, above all, timely, Great Peacemakers should be required reading for the youth of the world. Classrooms are flooded with history textbooks that celebrate military heroes. It is long past time that our children learn from books that celebrate peace.
~ Dr. Oscar Arias President of Costa Rica and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
