Healing The Body Politic - Baha'i Perspectives On Peace And Conflict Resolution

Healing the Body Politic - Baha'i Perspectives on Peace and Conflict Resolution Book Cover

by Charles Lerche

Series of essays by scholars showing the Baha'i approach to global conflict resolution.


Everyone is aware of and concerned about conflict.
We hear constantly of terrorism, ethnic disturbances, trade wars, political partisanship, labour disputes and family breakdown.
Many conflicts have proved resistant to traditional methods of containment and resolution and this has stimulated the search for more innovative, more comprehensive and more fully human approaches to dealing with conflict.

This volume of the George Ronald Bahá'í Studies Series reflects an effort by a group of scholars from around the world, united by common convictions, to contribute to this search.
Inspired by the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith to provide new insights and solutions, contributors look at:
