I.B. Tauris Reissues Peccei-Ikeda Dialogue

LONDON, UK: Publisher I.B. Tauris has reissued Before It Is Too Late: A Dialogue (which includes a new index) by Club of Rome cofounder Aurelio Peccei and Daisaku Ikeda. While the work was originally published in the 1970s, their insights into the sobering state of the world and into the indivisibility of the global community and the environment from the prevailing values and priorities of daily human activity remain more relevant today than ever.

Before It Is Too Late was rereleased along with A Lifelong Quest for Peace, a dialogue between the two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling and Ikeda that explores the range of human knowledge, the pursuit of global peace and disarmament.

This is the third two-volume release by I.B. Tauris under its "Echoes and Reflections" series of 12 classic dialogues between Ikeda and world figures.
