"Towards a Global Ethic" was the lofty declaration of the historic 1993 Parliament of the World's Religions. The pres-ent title brings together highly qualified contributors at the Parliament who explore diverse beliefs, interreligious conflict, population, environment, poverty, and human rights and responsibilities. Other chapters list organizations, books, journals, videos, and electronic forums that envision a religiously tolerant and cooperative Earth in the 21st century. (An earlier edition of this book was compiled for the Parliament; this revised and greatly expanded edition is a timely document from the Parliament.) This effective working tool is highly recommended for both reference and circulating collections in any library.-Gary P. Gillum, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, Ut.
