Product Description


"Terzani declares peace on war and war on American thinking" International Herald Tribune, 11th of April 2002 --International Hearld Tribune

"Terzani attempts the difficult operation of forcing the West at war to think it over. He suggests that the only way to stop terrorism is not by killing terrorists, but by eliminating the reasons that turn a man or a woman into a terrorist" L`Espresso, Rome February 2002 --L'Espresso

It may seem truism, we all - in theory know it, don't we? And still the only solution we managed to come up with to 11/9 was killing tens of thousands people who had nothing at all to do with this attack. By fighting bin Laden with the sword we create thousands of new "bin Ladens", it's inevitable, it was always like this and this another think we know: war brings only war. Always. Still nothing has really changed, has it? Oh, yes, we in Britain we're doing well, our "friends" in USA also, but do we really think the world is limited to us? Do we really think we have right to go round killing anyone we want? Mr Terzani is very much right: we have developed technological wonderful civilization but morally and spiritually we have actually gone backwards. It's sad, but it's true.

one of the best books I've ever read 17 April 2013
By saabista - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was written as a reaction to 09/11 and the war on terror that followed. The author was convinced the world should've taken a different turn - a peaceful, not a violent one. Immediatelly after the 09/11 attack he travelled to Afganistan and neighbouring countries and wrote letters about what he saw and felt. It's a philosophical, deeply moving book from a man who understood what he saw and predicted our future correctly (eventhough he didn't live to see it).

I'm not a pacifist and I don't really care about the big issues of war and peace - but I really loved this book. And I'm definetly looking into other books by this author.

where the vision of good and bed is but in the right light 9 Sept. 2005
By Ferronato Pierfranco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tiziano has done a wanderful job or helping us to put this horrible war into a more human perspective. He makes us realize that there is some hope for us all and we can all do something.

It's a book to be kept close to the bed, for reading it every day
