Seeds of Peace is a critique of modern society and a proposal for a more humane and livable world. Sulak Sivaraksa of Thailand is one of Asia’s leading social thinkers and social activists.

At once critical and compassionate, Sulak offers intelligent and creative alternatives to the destructive patterns of living so prevalent in the world today.
