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. It is the story of one man’s effort to live as though we were  
all brothers and sisters.

Engaging stories on every page provide a peace activist’s eyewitness  
account of many of the major historical events of the past sixty years,  
including the Civil Rights and anti–Vietnam War movements in the United  
States and the little- known but equally significant nonviolent efforts in  
the Soviet Union, Kosovo, Palestine, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.

Hartsough’s story demonstrates the power and effectiveness of organized  
nonviolent action. But Waging Peace is more than one man’s memoir.  
Hartsough shows how this struggle is waged all over the world by ordinary  
people committed to ending the spiral of violence and war.

Co-sponsored by the Peace and Social Concerns Committee of Friends Meeting at  
Cambridge, Massachusetts Peace Action, Veterans for Peace, Friends of  
Nonviolence Peaceforce, and the American Friends Service Committee. Contact:
