David Hartsough knows how to get in the way. He has used his body to block Navy ships headed for Vietnam and trains loaded with munitions on their way to El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has crossed borders to meet “the enemy” in East Berlin, Castro’s Cuba, and present-day Iran. He has marched with mothers confronting a violent regime in Guatemala and stood with refugees threatened by death squads in the Philippines!
Waging Peace is a testament to the difference one person can make. Hartsough’s stories inspire, educate, and encourage readers to find ways to work for a more just and peaceful world. Inspired by the examples of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., Hartsough has spent his life experimenting with the power of active nonviolence, demonstrating its power and effectiveness.
With engaging stories on every page provide a peace activist’s eyewitness account of many of the major historical events of the past sixty years around the world, this is the story of one man’s effort to live as though we were all brothers and sisters! But Waging Peace is more than one man’s memoir. Hartsough shows how this struggle is waged all over the world by waged all over the world by ordinary people committed to ending the spiral of violence and war.
