About the Author

A recognized worldwide authority on religion and spirituality, Asian history, philosophy, Tibetan Buddhism, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Robert A.F. Thurman is an eloquent advocate of the relevance of Eastern ideas to our daily lives. In doing so, he has become a leading voice of the value of reason, peace and compassion. He was named in 1997 one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans and has been profiled by The New York Times Magazine and People magazine. As part of his long-term commitment to the Tibetan cause, at the request of H.H. the Dalai Lama, Thurman co-founded Tibet House US in 1987 with Richard Gere, Philip Glass. Since then Uma Thurman, Melissa Mathison Ford, Natalie Merchant, Leila Hadley Luce, and others have joined the board. Tibet House US is a nonprofit organization in New York City dedicated to the preservation and renaissance of Tibetan civilization. It maintains a lively museum and cultural center, and offers programs in all aspects of the Tibetan arts and sciences. It recently founded the Menla Mountain Retreat Center in the Catskill Mountains to advance the healing arts and wisdom of Tibetan and Asian medicine traditions and offer their resources to the growing demand for alternative and complementary health practices.William Meyers has worked for twenty years to fulfill his late wife’s dying wish to make the story of the Dalai Lama’s heroic life better known to the wider world in the form of the graphic novel. Michael G. Burbank has dedicated his life’s work to making Tibetan Buddhist culture more widely accessible to his and future generations through his work at the Dalai Lama's Cultural Center in America, Tibet House US, and its Menla Mountain Retreat (www.menla.us).The graphic artistry in Man of Peace was a team effort of five artists coordinated by master artist/designer Steve Buccellato of Legendhaus Studio in Los Angeles.
