Reviews

"This is a book with a cornucopia of theoretical, theological and philosophical positions that will definitely satisfy the classicist and the intellectually minded. The book honors a practitioner of dialogue, negotiation, and conflict resolution, but at the same time uses some of the different experiences in which Milani was involved to move in the direction of a cosmopolitan social movement for international peace." - Carlos Alberto Torres, Director, Paulo Freire Institute and Associate Dean for Global Programs, University of California-Los Angeles, USA; President, World Council of Comparative Education Societies
