Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reprint of a 2000 work about which Book News wrote: Presents b&w photos by Collopy, of 75 people, some prominent, some less so, some living, some deceased; these people were selected because they have held to their convictions and contributed in some way to world peace. With each portrait is a statement by the person, ranging in length from a few hundred words (Elie Wiesel) to a couple thousand (Reverend Jesse Jackson). The whole is attractively presented in an oversize format (11.5x11.5<">). The intent is to showcase altruistic achievements and to inspire emulation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Photographer Callopy sets out to bring over seventy of the world's peacemakers in one book: Architects of Peace pairs his photos with their words and opinions, examining cultural and social differences, changes, and achievements of the past century. Much more than an art title, this embraces modern peacemakers and their work.
