About the author:
Dr David Adams, since his retirement from UNESCO in 2001, has continued to devote his energies to the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace. In 2001 he established the culture of peace info website (http://www.culture-of-peace.info). In 2002, he established the Culture of Peace News Network (http://cpnn-world.org). And since 2004 he has coordinated the Civil Society Report to the United Nations on the Culture of Peace (http://decade-culture-of-peace.org). These websites have grown to over 10,000 pages of documentation. At UNESCO, he was the Director of the Unit for the International Year for the Culture of Peace, proclaimed for the Year 2000 by the United Nations General Assembly. He had come to UNESCO in 1992 to develop the Culture of Peace Programme as an supplement and alternative to military peacekeeping operations. On behalf of UNESCO he drafted UN documents, including the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace (1999). Previously, at Yale and Wesleyan Universities, he published many studies on the brain mechanisms of aggressive behaviour, the evolution of war, and the psychology of peace activists, and he helped to develop and publicize the Seville Statement on Violence.

I Have Seen the Promised Land
 

A Utopian Novella

Authored by David Adams

This book, a utopian novella set in the year 2026, is part of a trilogy along with The History of the Culture of War and World Peace through the Town Hall: A Strategy for the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace. Together they put forward a comprehensive and feasible plan to achieve world peace. They are based on the author's responsibility for the United Nations International Year for the Culture of Peace (2000), the Manifesto 2000 signed by 75 million people, and the United Nations Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace. This novella foresees the coming collapse of the global economy and nation states as an opportunity to refound the United Nations on the basis of those who understand the need for a culture of peace: individuals, civil society organizations and local governments. It provides an imaginative and personalized account of how the world has come to a culture of peace and explores the various contradictions involved.
