Association of Women of the Mediterranean Region: A collection of papers from a regional conference bringing together women in education, public office and public service to discuss issues related to education for peace. In Search of Peace realistically confirms the hidden but salient truth that the search for peace is a spiritual journey. Every human being at one point or the other in life sets forth on this inevitable journey. Every collective of persons [usually referred to as State, Country,Township or Ethnic Group etc.] intermittently has been a sojourner on the track for peace. The contributors to this unique compendium of literary admissions of personal experiences involving psychological, mental, physical, social, political encounters in the sometimes indeliberate quest for peace, have exhibited overt courage and a common desire to positively influence other potential influence other potential wayfarers to keep going on the often unpredictable but ultimately rewarding variant paths to peace. The book opens with an innuendo challenging male dominated status quo in the last literary testament of Moyra de Vere Mintoff [late] a founding member of the Association of Women of the Mediterranean Region challenging male dominated status quo and seeks alternative approaches to peace and governance. The challenge to involve women in ensuring the sustanance of peace is aptly supported by Matma Gandi's inverse depiction of the seven social ingredients required for peace including namely principled politics justifiable wealth, business morality, character based education etc as the vital components universally required for sustained peace. Susan Bright's "Personal Journeys" at page 11 reminds us in peace-times of our responsibility to tutor children on the causes of war, the price and effects of war and the inevitability of war when real peace is not effectively sustained by healing old wounds. Nineth Pouron-Kazantzis's "Stereotype of the Stranger" vividly exposes the inner turmoils of women born, nurtured and gradually crossing the line between an ethnic legacy of Greek/Turkish suspicion, hatred and war into one of peaceful deliberations in a hitherto unfamiliar atmosphere of growing trust and mutual recognition of each other's expressions, differences and expectations.
