Three-Dialogue Set Published in Bulgaria

SOFIA, Bulgaria: Sofia University Press has released Expected Prospects for the Twenty-first Century (tentative translation), a three-volume set comprised of Bulgarian editions of Daisaku Ikeda's dialogues with British historian Arnold Toynbee, former Club of Rome founder Aurelio Peccei, and Professor Axinia Djourova, a leading art historian in Eastern Europe. The book launch took place at Sofia University on November 25, 2008, with some 100 guests in attendance.

Of the three dialogues, only the Toynbee-Ikeda work, Choose Life--which examines virtually every sphere of human nature, interaction and endeavor--is currently available in English. Choose Life has been published in 27 languages to date, including the original Japanese.
