A writer for the Washington Post for twenty-five years, Colman McCarthy is well respected as a pacifist, teacher, journalist, and advocate of nonviolence. In his twice-weekly columns which are nationally syndicated, he has extolled nonviolence as both a philosophy and a practical way of life. As a high-school, college, and law school teacher, he has taught the principles and history of nonviolence to more than three thousand students in the past decade.
What McCarthy has written over the years is, as he puts it, all of one peace. His consistency of vision derives from the indwelling of nonviolence. He blames no one for the culture of violence in which we live, but for a quarter-century he has spoken out honestly and passionately against that culture. All of One Peace is a major part of the body of work that has come to stand for integrity, reason, and candor in a time marked by lies, violence, and absurdity.
