What could be more timely than a book that advocates we teach the skills and knowledge students need to both live peacefully in the world and promote peace through their actions? After all, children are exposed to violence dozens of times daily, whether in programming targeted to their age groups, evening news carrying the latest casualties of war and murder, or video games that trivialize cruelty. That’s why Riane Eisler and Ron Miller have joined with thirteen other proponents for peace education, including famed children’s troubadour Raffi, to present a crucial collection of essays that will help you create instructional practices and lessons that model the tools students need to turn aside culturally conditioned predilections toward domination and violence and, instead, embrace ideals that enable them to transform their relationships through a belief in compassion, caring, respect, and diversity.
