Teaching Peace students exchange letters with their teacher

Teaching Peace students exchange letters with their teacher

$ 22.95

by Colman McCarthy.

To see if nonviolence could be taught, in 1982 Colman McCarthy became a volunteer teacher at one of the poorest high schools in Washington, DC. In the thirty-two years since then, he has taught peace studies courses for more than ten thousand college and high school students. Large numbers of those students have faithfully kept in touch with McCarthy, often with handwritten letters, and he has answered them with the same seriousness he brought to his columns and books. The exchanges rise to a rare kind of literature that blends personal warmth, intellectual honesty, and shared idealism. Colman McCarthy, a syndicated columnist for the Washington Post for nearly thirty years, is the cofounder and director of The Center for Teaching Peace. He is the author of seven previous books and editor of three. His articles have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Nation, The Progressive, The New Republic, The Atlantic, and National Catholic Reporter.
