Krieger-Ikeda Dialogue Listed on Washington Post's 5 Best Books on Peace

In The Washington Post article, "Five Books About Peace," writer Mary Ishimoto Morris includes Choose Hope: Your Role in Waging Peace in the Nuclear Age by David Krieger, founding president of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, and Daisaku Ikeda, among the five works that "inspire fresh thinking, hope and action" for the advancement of peace. Their dialogue, she writes, "posits that hope for peace is a conscious choice and that ordinary people can and must guide their leaders to create it. Ikeda hopes this dialogue--covering the roles of philosophy, science, literature, and non-governmental organizations in promoting a safe and peaceful world--will 'inspire young people to undertake further dialogue for the sake of peace.'"
