Praise & Recognition

The international stories of individuals dedicating their lives to humanitarian efforts will inspire young activists, who will want to move on to the extensive list of appended resources, entitled “What Can You Do: How You Can Be a Troublemaker for Peace.” Source notes corresponding to direct quotes used in the text conclude this inspiring title. Booklist
Tales of dedication and strength...Freedom riders, nobel winners have much to teach...a more modest book, succeeds in being more inspiring. This surely is because the women it profiles, the dozen who have won the Nobel Peace Prize, seem to have been touched not so much by genius, a state denied to most people, but by the more accessible qualities of determination and courage...the book helpfully provides a list of organizations that welcome, as Williams calls them, "troublemakers for positive change." Montreal Gazette
Nobel's Women of Peace offers young readers easy to read biographies of these twelve women, from diverse backgrounds and eras, who are both historical and modern-day heroes.
