SÃO PAULO, Brazil: Editora Brasil Seikyo has published a redesigned Portuguese edition of The New Human Revolution, Vol. 1. In addition, publisher Ediciones Civilización Global in Madrid, Spain, has released a single Spanish-language edition combining Volumes 3 and 4.
The New Human Revolution is a historical novel detailing the international development of the lay Buddhist organization, the Soka Gakkai under the leadership of its third president, Daisaku Ikeda. The series recounts the experiences of pioneering Soka Gakkai members around the world who challenged and surmounted countless personal struggles through their Buddhist practice.
The New Human Revolution is a sequel to The Human Revolution, which describes the efforts of second Soka Gakkai president, Josei Toda, to rebuild the organization in the aftermath of World War II.
