The New Human Revolution, Vol. 18 Published in the U.S.


LOS ANGELES, USA: The World Tribune Press publishes the English edition of The New Human Revolution, Vol. 18, a historical novel detailing the international development of the Soka Gakkai lay Buddhist organization under its third president, Daisaku Ikeda. The work, which is still ongoing in Japanese, recounts the experiences of pioneering Soka Gakkai members in striving to surmount countless personal difficulties through their Buddhist practice. The series is a sequel to The Human Revolution, which describes the efforts of the organization's second president Josei Toda to establish the Soka Gakkai in the aftermath of World War II.
