Publisher Description

An extraordinary tour-de-force of history; life & death; religion; nations; peace and war; quantum physics; politics, economics, identity, education, and more -all from an underlying Buddhist perspective.

In this book, the author describes a new world that is even now beginning to emerge all over the planet - a new civilization, and a new spirituality and religion, that will eventually utterly transform all of known history and all our lives.

The author, James Hilgendorf, is a 40 year practicing member of the SGI, or Soka Gakkai International, the largest Buddhist lay organization in the world today, with 13,000,000 members in 192 countries.

Reviewers' comments:

"The Great New Emerging Civilization is an expression of hope that a far better world is possible. At the core of this book is a plea for human dignity, just societies, and a peaceful and sustainable planet - all essential if we care about the world we live in and will leave to our children and grandchildren." - David Krieger, President, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.

"Part memoir and part manifesto for a new world...compelling stories of his own meandering journey through life that brought him to the ideals he expresses on these pages." - Theresa Welsh, The Seeker.

James Hilgendorf is the author of seven other books, "The Buddha and the Dream of America"; "Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective"; "The New Superpower"; "Poems of Death: Time for Eternity"; "Handbook for Youth in a Muddied Age"; "A New Myth for America"; and "Forever Here."
