On February 15 (well, and San Francisco on the 16th) the world witnessed, and participated in, the greatest global peace protest ever. This full-color book captures the power and beauty of 30 million people making history. One hundred, thirty-one photographs of the demonstrations from 30 cities—including Amsterdam, Baghdad, Tehran, Santiago de Chile, Tokyo, New York, Dhaka, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Tel Aviv, Glasgow, Paris, Rome, Sydney, Cairo, and San Francisco—coupled with selected quotes from numerous notables and supporters, including Koki Annan, Uri Avnery, Leslie Cagan, Yuri Dojc, Gunter Grass, A.L. Kennedy, Michael Moore, Camille Paglia, Tim Robbins, Arundhati Roy, Jose Saramago, Susan Sontag, Thabo Mbeki, and Noam Chomsky. This beautiful hardcover edition—created by Hello [NYC]—includes an introductory essay from Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and founder of the Gandhi Institute For Non-Violence. If you go to one demonstration and then go home, that's one thing, but the people in power can live with that. What they can't live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, organizations that keep learning lessons from the last time and doing it better the next time. —Noam Chomsky
