Nonkilling Global Political Science, 2002

Dr. Glenn E. Paige includes the Doukhobors and the Molokans amongst those groups exhibiting the characteristics of a nonkilling society.  Lev Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi and Marting Luther King, Jr. are some of those rare masters who have advocated the creation of a world without war based on the wisdom of nonkilling. Below I list more encouragement for the nonkilling thesis. It takes someone with deep experience like the Doukhobors to get to the heart of this book. — Koozma J. Tarasoff (Updated Oct 2, 2007)

Nonkilling Global Political Science is a perfect antidote for our historic love affair with war. Genuine food for thought for a lot of conforming pundits and editorial writers, not to mention teachers and professors.
