This book is a step by step guideline of preparation on the journey of peace. Explanations follow in a simple logical manner. Explanations in this book are profoundly logical and quite unlike the common literature, which is claimed to be 'about peace' or 'on peace' but, in fact, is about the absence of peace or wanting to have peace. For us to have peace (peace as an end), we must be in peace (peace as means) because such the means, so the end Many great minds from around the globe have pondered over, theorized, entertained, explained, explored and demonstrated ‘Peace’ as a universal theme. However, Gandhiji was the first and only to actually exemplify by living his philosophy of peace that justified both peace as means and peace as an end - called non-violence philosophy; which was taken up by many even after the time of Gandhiji. Dr. Monika Spolia has done an excellent job in weaving together the historical patterns overtime of socio-political upheavals, unrest and the rise of unspoken bubbles of non-violence philosophy scattered around the globe ready to be burst. This book comprises of a study of various literatures - Gandhiji, Bayard Rustin, Rosa Parks and Oka blockades critiqued in the light of Non-Violence philosophy as praxis and culture. Bayard Rustin and Rosa Parks in the United States also shared Gandhian vision of non-violence. The Oka blockades in Canada witnessed an attempt of satyagraha by the First Nations people. Further, this book demonstrates that peace can be attained in real life only through dynamism of Non-Violence philosophy which takes place when we live Non-Violence as praxis and that the journey of peace must be non-violent to be peaceful. The scope of this book encompasses micro level as well as macro level. In its holistic approach, non-violence philosophy starts at micro-level with the individual, and is gradually applicable at all macro-levels through satyagraha, sarvodaya (sustainable economic model) and Gandhian anarchy balancing itself into political stability. Dr. Spolia has successfully succeeded in presenting an objective view of peaceful ends through peaceful means in this book.
