Paths to Peace
Dirk Collier

Black and white. Left and right.
Believers and infidels. Us and them.
The list is endless and should make it painfully obvious: differences between people are inherently dangerous.
Difference divides; it breeds prejudices, fear and hatred; and sometimes, it kills.

This is what Paths to Peace is about: how to avoid the traps of hatred, even if there is no hope of avoiding, removing or convincing those with whom we disagree. No religion or cultural tradition is immune to the poison of fanaticism and hatred. In each and every one of them, however, paths to peace can be found.

Highly erudite and eminently readable, Paths to Peace offers much-needed food for thought, and promotes rational and detached reflection on what usually are highly sensitive and emotional subjects: identity, ideology and religious or philosophical beliefs.
