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). From 2004 to 2010 he 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. In 2007 he published the trilogy: History of the Culture of War, World Peace through the Town Hall, and I Have Seen the Promised Land. 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.

Embrace the Fire

Plant the Seeds for a Culture of Peace

Authored by David Adams
Edition: 1

Soon, the culture of war will crash. And what then? Will new cultures of war arise to fill the void? Like what happened in the Great Depression of the 1930's when the old bourgeois "democracies" crashed and were replaced by the extreme cultures of war that we call fascism. Or will the seeds for a culture of peace that we have planted be able to grow and create a new kind of culture to replace the culture of war? This book describes the hundreds of seeds for peace that have been planted in recent years, as they have been published in the Culture of Peace News Network. The book is richly illustrated, and provides an optimistic vision for a future culture of peace.
