Publisher Comments:

“One little person giving all her time to peace makes news. Many people giving some of their time can make history”—Peace Pilgrim

“Peace is a daily battle for dignity”—Arundhati Roy

“[A] new force for peace and justice throughout the country and around the world has been generated . . . strong enough to stop outrageous wars and creative enough to bring lasting change.”—Leslie Cagan

This stunning full-color collection of photographs and statements is a stirring document of the largest peace demonstration in history.

A dramatic collection of 131 photos from peace demonstrations spanning 38 countries. Amsterdam; Baghdad; Bombay; Cape Town; Dhaka; Glasgow; Karachi; Moscow; New York; Rio De Janeiro; Ross Island, Antarctica; San Francisco; Seoul; Tehran; Tel Aviv; Toronto are among the many cities featured. A forward by Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, and contributions from Kofi Anan, Noam Chomsky, Gunter Grass, A.L. Kennedy, Michael Moore, Camille Paglia, Tim Robbins, Susan Sontag and many more comprise a moving and motivating document of the largest simultaneous peace protest in history. 2/15 captures the thoughts and emotions of February 15, 2003 and the 30 million people from around the world who marched, danced, sang, and shook the globe in their opposition to an imminent U.S.-led war against Iraq. As international and diverse as the protests themselves, the images and ideas within 2/15 express opinions and questions which resonate far beyond the Iraq crisis, while preserving the most captivating moments and messages from this historic movement for peace.

Synopsis:

Photographs and artwork from peace demonstrations on February 15, 2003 reflect the sentiment of the approximately thirty million people who demonstrated on that day against an imminent war in Iraq.

Rarely does a book capture the power and beauty of 30 million people making history.

GothikHippie, September 24, 2006 (view all comments by GothikHippie)
I had to use this book for a class at my university and at first I did not know what to think of it- what was it? -a picture book?

As I started studying the pictures I realised this was more than a book- this was a representation of a movement and an inspiration for the people on the outside who were eager to find ways to make similar statements. It, like footage from Woodstock, was a starting point for people to follow after. The images are powerful, the quotations are amazing- especially when you start to realise who said the words on the page.

Peace be with you-
~GH
