The past winners, origin, history and importance of the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize; the WPI brings Nobel Peace Laureates into classrooms.  These world peace-builders are our modern day Mahatma Gandhi's and much can be learned from their courageous historically important acts.  In 2001 over 10,000 Oregon middle and high school students heard the 1989 Nobel Peace Laureate, the Dalai Lama; speak how to resolve conflict through dialogue, not fighting or running away; as well as many other Nobel Peace Laureates. Ethical behavior and achieving peace must be taught and this book provides a simple, effective way to bring these concepts and parts of our world history to students in a classroom setting.
