How Peace Came to the World
How Peace Came to the World
Edited by Earl W. Foell and Richard A. Nenneman
MIT Press, 1986, 257 pp.

The Christian Science Monitor invited its readers to look 25 years ahead and describe how world peace had been achieved by the year 2010. The responses, partly given here (there were over 1,300), are imaginative, although inevitably some see peace as sprouting only after a terrible nuclear conflict while others focus on international diplomacy to avoid such a holocaust. Lincoln Bloomfield concludes this unusual and intriguing book with an essay on "Imagination and Responsibility: Dilemmas in Translating Creative Ideas into Action."
