All experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
U.S. Declaration of Independence, 1776
We live in a time of monumental change. While many have written about the shift that is unfolding, in the end, what people yearn for is a way to make this new worldview concrete and tangible. How do we build our institutions to reflect the new reality? This is what Beyond Vengeance, Beyond Duality (Hampton Roads, May 2010) offers readers a blueprint for transformative change that begins with a central pillar of our culture, how we define justice.
Beyond Vengeance, Beyond Duality will stimulate debate, controversy and a vision for fundamental change among politicians and policy makers, lawyers and law students, religious leaders and theology majors, entrepreneurs and business majors, peace practitioners and peace studies students, as well as every activist who is ready to work for meaningful reform.
The unique way in which the pieces of the puzzle are assembled in Beyond Vengeance, Beyond Duality make it more difficult for those who defend the old order to make their case, and it will give legitimacy to those who are building the new forms. Through this frame, old approaches to law, government, business, religion, education and economics are seen in a fresh new way that leads to concrete answers. A new world is at hand and we need not wait!
