Two Shining Souls : Jane Addams, Leo Tolstoy, and the Quest for Global Peace Hardback
In Two Shining Souls, Cracraft explores the decades-long encounter of Jane Addams (1860-1935), the famous American social reformer and peace activist, with Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), the acclaimed Russian writer and sage.
This hitherto untold story highlights the crisis in global pacifism precipitated by World War I.
Never before had the quest for international peace seemed more promising; never since, in the wake of World War II, the Cold War, and the "War on Terror", has it seemed more impossible.
Yet perhaps the story of these two shining souls has never needed to be told more.
