Inspired by JFK's Profiles in Courage and targeting global audiences, an assessment of the contributions of 20th-century leaders in negotiating peace treaties, preventing conflicts, advancing human rights and promoting sustainability cites the examples of such notables as Yitzhak Rabin, Dag Hammarskjöld and Mahatma Gandhi

In The Peacemakers Bruce Jentleson shows how key figures in the previous century rewrote the scripts they were handed and successfully prevented conflict, advanced human rights and promoted global sustainability. Covering a broad range of historical examples from Yitzhak Rabin's efforts for Arab-Israeli peace to Dag Hammarskjöld's effectiveness as secretary-general of the United Nations and Mahatma Gandhi's pioneering use of non-violence as a political tool, Jentleson argues that individuals can shape policy- because they have. For each leader, Jentleson tells us who they were as an individual, why they made the choices they did, how they pursued their goals and what they were able to achieve. An ambitious book for ambitious people, The Peacemakers is a guide for anybody who wants to achieve meaningful change on the global stage.
