Product description


“This delightful book entertained me and enriched my knowledge. How many books do that? If you pick it up, I defy you to put it down until you’ve finished it.”

Lou Cannon, historian and journalist

“In an absorbingly well-researched, well-written and thoughtful history of the Peace Prize . . . Nordlinger looks with a critical but not jaundiced eye at the laureates. . . . In the course of his deliberations he has thought deeply about what genuinely constitutes peace.”

Andrew Roberts, historian

“A masterly book, which dissects its notoriously controversial subject with precision, elegance, and wit. A splendid job!”

Solomon Volkov, Radio Liberty / Radio Free Europe

“. . . like a history of the modern world, told through the prism of the prize, full of characters both familiar and unfamiliar, and well written in the style we’ve come to expect.”

John J. Miller, author, director of journalism at Hillsdale College
