The editors of this book have brought together a powerful collection of stories documenting how local communities participate in transforming conflicts that have been destroying their societies. Offering concrete evidence of what is possible, these stories need to be read and pondered by politicians, civic activists and policy makers.

50 short accounts from aroud the world document what ordinary people are doing to stop war and killing, armed only with integrity, stamina and courage. They highlight what works, who does it, where, how much it costs, and show how powerful non-violence can be.
