Love in Action is a collection of more than two decades of Thich Nhat Hanh's seminal writings on nonviolence, peace, and reconciliation. Reflecting on the devastation of war—from Vietnam to the Persian Gulf—Nhat Hanh speaks in the tradition of Gandhi and King of the need for mindfulness, and altruistic love as the basis for political action.

"Exploring the roots of war or describing the path to peace, nobody makes more sense than Thich Nhat Hanh."—Inquiring Mind

"[Nhat Hanh] articulates the central teaching that violence originates in each person...and that with the practice of mediation and mindfulness it can be overcome."—The San Francisco Chronicle
