WAGING PEACE: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist

Posted by Ryan Hall
11.13.14

David Hartsough recently released his new book Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist. David is the executive director of Peaceworkers, and cofounder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce as well as an initiator of the World Beyond War movement.

Hartsough has been actively working locally and internationally for nonviolent social change and peaceful resolution of conflicts since he met Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1956. Waging Peace is a testament to this effort. Hartsough’s stories inspire, educate, and encourage readers to find ways to work for a more just and peaceful world. It is the story of one man’s effort to live as though we were all brothers and sisters.

Ken Butigan, Pace e Bene’s Executive Director, writes in his recent Waging Nonviolence book review that “David has rooted his lifelong pilgrimage of peace in a simple conviction: that all life is precious. He has helped spark and build one campaign after another when that preciousness is forgotten or undermined….  if you want to read a page-turner that reveals how one person has been doing it for the last 50 years, get a copy of David Hartsough’s new autobiography, Waging Peace.”  Read Ken Butigan’s full review on Waging Nonviolence here.

David has been traveling the country recently speaking about his new book, see the full list of tour dates and stops here. We’ve got several great links to videos of his talks listed below.
