About the Author

Peter N. Stearns is University Professor of World History and the Provost Emeritus of George Mason University. He has written or edited more than 135 books, including Peace in World History and World History: The Basics.


This set of chapters on the use of dialogue in peacebuilding is powerfully informative and beautifully written. Engaging in dialogue is challenging work, and this fine book provides substantial help.

--Nel Noddings, Lee L. Jacks Professor of Education, Emerita, at Stanford University, and author, Caring: A Feminine Approach to Ethics and Moral Education and Peace Education: How We Come to Love and Hate War

This vibrant, insightful volume sheds new light on dialogue processes that serve as the DNA of peacebuilding and help bridge the chasms of deeply divided societies. The book is especially groundbreaking in its focus on the links between "inner peace," including dynamics such as compassion and dignity, and broad social change. It is this constant interplay between transformation of the self and transformation of society that gives dialogue its tensile strength, and the authors capture these dynamics compellingly. In an increasingly polarized world, this book offers hope, and a reflection on how we can change society, and ourselves.

--Melanie Greenberg, former Chief Executive Officer of the Alliance for Peacebuilding, and current Managing Director for Peacebuilding of Humanity United
