Reviews

Famous advocates of peace and nonviolence are presented in these titles. Preliminary information on their early lives is provided, but the primary focus is on their attempts to make things better for others. Nelson Mandela fought to end apartheid and the Dalai Lama attempted to compromise with China over Tibet. Views of critics are also included—for instance, Christopher Hitchens’s negative opinion of Mother Teresa. The narratives are moderately engaging, depending on the reader’s interest, and they are fairly comprehensive. While not overly exciting reads, these volumes are educational and will be very useful for reports. Titles should be selected as needed.
