"On the global playing field from which communism has so recently been ejected, democracy is the political system which appears to have won the game. But it's a hollow triumph. As Rev. Chipenda points out in this booklet, poverty, hunger, and torture still exist in some 'democratic' countries. What is the connection between democracy and poverty, voting and hunger ? And how can people around the world have more of a say in the decisions which affect their lives ? This booklet provides you with examples of people and communities who are expanding our understanding of democracy and its relationship to development". -- Intro., p. .

"'In Peace and Friendship' is a response to those who faith or conscience compels them to understand more deeply the struggles of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It provides an opportunity, particularly for non-Aboriginal people, to open themselves to a new perspective by exploring a relationship with the original inhabitants of this land that recognizes their unique nationhood. .... [It] is an educational resource for groups of youth or adults, within a congregation, a regional church body or as an open community event. There are five sessions.
