Into Full Flower
By Elise Boulding and Daisaku Ikeda
Dialogue Path Press, March 2010
What are peace cultures?
How can I make them happen ?
Elise Boulding, an American Quaker, and Daisaku Ikeda, a Japanese Buddhist, began their journeys in peace building from vastly divergent locales and traditions. However, as the fifteen intimate conversations of Into Full Flower: Making Peace Cultures Happen reveal, shared wisdom grows from an unwavering commitment to a better world. Throughout the book, the authors explore the dynamic qualities of peace cultures, including:
Elise Boulding is Professor of Sociology Emerita, Dartmouth College, where she developed the nation's first peace studies program.
Daisaku Ikeda is President of Soka Gakkai International, a lay Buddhist organization with 12 million members worldwide.
