Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In today's America, objecting to the glorification of war-and the warriors-is tantamount to blasphemy. Michael Knox takes this on in a unique fashion, by honoring those who have committed their lives to building a culture of peace. With Knox's view of war as a disease and peace as the cure, his beautifully crafted book represents a critical dose of preventive medicine."-Medea Benjamin

"The US Peace Memorial Foundation, honoring those who devote themselves to pursuit of peace, is a very welcome initiative, directing attention to what the world badly needs. I hope you will join in supporting it."-Noam Chomsky

"We are desperately in need of voices that are convinced that law is better than war. Dr. Mi- chael Knox has been a champion for peace for many years. His new book can help move the world toward a more humane and peaceful future."-Benjamin B. Ferencz

"Envisioning a culture of peace, Michael Knox describes ways to recreate social bonds, em- bracing fairness and friendship rather than militarism."-Kathy Kelly

"Americans are subjected to war propaganda from their schools, the media and even their religious institutions. Michael Knox tells us how to cultivate a culture of peace by giving recognition to those who work to end wars. This effort is long overdue."-Margaret Kimberley

"Many years ago, Michael Knox saw a need in this violent empire of the USA for a memo- rial to peace workers in a country where war is glorified and recklessly memorialized. I was honored to be the first recipient of the US Peace Prize and do highly recommend this book as a furtherance of Michael's quest for peace. I hope it inspires the next generation of peace workers."-Cindy Sheehan

"An indispensable tool to overcome the culture of militarism that impoverishes human needs at home while creating endless wars, failed states, and boundless misery abroad. Dr. Knox challenges the pathology at the heart of the U.S. empire by providing a blueprint for amplify- ing the voices of antiwar heroes through a national peace memorial. A critical piece of the uprising for people, planet, and peace."-Jill Stein

"This book powerfully makes the case for shifting from a culture that honors war to one that honors peace-making, but is principally devoted to concrete examples of how to do it, including through rewarding those who work for peace and creating a public peace monument."-David Swanson
