Can one woman bring about world peace? Read selected stories from Asian cultures as retold by Chandrani Warnasuriya in her book Peace Tales From Asia: Building a Culture of Peace. "What a difference it would make if we replace war with peace," she writes. The author is inspired by those promoting and working for peace both locally and globally. She was motivated to write Peace Tales because, "War and terrorism was prevalent in my country Sri Lanka for over thirty years; torn by ethnic and religious conflict made everybody including myself long for peace. Round-the-globe acts of violence and reckless killing have left thousands bereaved and mourning for loved ones lost forever." Inspired by her students, "I seriously thought about writing when I started to teach and work with children. I realized that children were the grass-roots level with which to begin work for peace in the world." Author Bio: From Sri Lanka, Chandrani Warnasuriya has completed her next book, What is Hallowed About It? A Child's Approach to Popular Symbols in World Cultures. Her blog promotes peace around the world, Chandrani86.wordpress.com. Publisher's website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/PeaceTalesFromAsia.html
