How can we humanize each other and act as responsible global citizens? What are appropriate and effective responses to terrorism? How should media figures report on terrorism and war? How should elected officials respond? What can ordinary citizens do?

How to Stop the Next War Now, edited by renowned CODEPINK peace activists Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans, shares expert insight on the issues and powers-that-be that can lead us to war---including the media, our elected politicians, global militarization, and the pending scarcity of national resources. It aims to educate and reflect on the effectiveness of peace movement activities and offers hope, through shared ideas, action steps, and checklists to transition from a culture of violence to a culture of peace.

Full of practical, proven suggestions to promote education, awareness, activism, and political change, drawn from experts from every walk of life who have passionately devoted their lives to peace. Contributors include elected officials, media personalities and reporters, public intellectuals, and ordinary citizens, all who are eager to find the most appropriate and effective responses to terrorism (other than bombing the hell out of third-world countries). Includes short essays, interviews, poems, illustrations, Q&As, action tips, and more.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The editors, cofounders of CODEPINK: Women for Peace, have collected essays, letters, poems, and quotes highly critical of the Iraq war, President Bush, and war and terrorism in general. Their objective is to rally people everywhere, and especially women, to oppose war and terrorism and to work to bring peace. Suggestions are offered on strategies for making one's voice heard and on how to network with like-minded people. With a few exceptions, all the authors gathered in the book are women, though a good number are not published writers or political professionals. For example, in addition to an introduction by Alice Walker and contributions from women such as Janeane Garafalo and Nancy Pelosi, there are entries from mothers and siblings who have lost family members in Iraq. Most of the articles reflect the feminist, pacifist philosophy of the editors. Librarians should consider their readership in adding this book to their collections, as it could be viewed as a controversial work in some parts of the country.-Thomas J. Baldino, Wilkes Univ., Wilkes-Barre, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
