The peoples of the earth have the sacred right to peace. That is the focus and conviction of this book.

building on a long carer in politics, diplomacy and social activism, the author examines the requirements of peace in a post September 11 world. living as we do in a world driven by excessive militarism, some people doubt peace can be achieved at all, to the extent that they even discount the emerging right to peace. Acton is urgently needed. We must build a just world if humanity is to survive. The culture of war can and must be changed into a culture of peace.

This book, which combine the voice of experience with the passion of commitment on the part of the author, debunks the theory of the inevitability of war. It goes on to  demonstrate that the modern  world possess enough creativity and the political and legal tools needed to resolve any conflict without resorting to war.
