Author(s): Raymond Huber
A war hero who refused to fight, students who stood up to Hitler, a ship that sailed into a nuclear test zone, a whole town which practiced non- violence. Peace Warriors tells the dramatic stories of people who chose non-violent resistance in times of conflict - stories of young men and women from New Zealand and around the world. Young readers will discover that peaceful resistance can be as effective as military force, and that people power can change history.
'A compelling, empowering book, which is both an absorbing read and an affirmation of human decency. I'm usually reluctant to use the word "inspiring", but these stories of courage, endurance and fidelity from all around the world totally deserve that accolade.' --David Hill
