Politics of Peace

issue cover 286 Buy this issue Join Resurgence Free e-cards

The September/October issue of Resurgence & Ecologist takes a timely look at the politics of peace. While ordinary people around the world hunger for peace, political leaders and the arms traders continue to prepare for, and carry out, wars in the name of national security and territorial integrity.

In his Keynotes article Samdhong Rinpoche, former Prime Minister of the Tibetan government in exile, explores the perennial principles of peace and non-violence and the relevance of Gandhi's philosophy today.

To mark the first London Seed Bank festival, we include a three-part special feature on food security, preserving seed heritage and the need to protect basic crop production from corporate control.

Also in this issue: Oxfam's Chief Executive Mark Goldring on the dangers of extreme inequality; the value of experiential learning in education; Robert Holtom explores the novels of Ursula Le Guin; environmental art and eco-poetry by Helen Moore and Lynne Wycherley.
