The Last War Book Cover

Racism, Spirituality and the Future of Civilization

by Mark L Perry

Mark Perry surveys the historical roots of racism and the despiritualization of society, back from the modern day to their primitive, prehistoric past. Holding out a vision provided by Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, he explains how humanity can lay the groundwork for a new civilization.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overcoming racism, respiritualizing society, establishing the unity of all people and creating true civilization is the last war. To fight it, we need to understand how society got to this point:

* how racism developed
* why society became despiritualized
* what happened to our sense of oneness

and we need to develop a vision of how the world can move from its turbulent adolescence to its long awaited maturity, a time when all nations and races will become united in a global civilization.

Mark Perry uses the analogy of an archaeological dig to survey the historical roots of racism and the despiritualization of society, century by century, back from the modern day to their primitive, prehistoric past. Holding out a vision provided by Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, more than a century ago, he explains how humanity can lay the groundwork for a new civilization.

Mark Perry grew up in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. He earned a BA in music and physics at Haverford College and a MA in anthropology and a PhD in the history of culture at the University of Chicago. He and his wife and three children live in Beirut, Lebanon, where he teaches social science and cultural studies at the Lebanese American University.
