This book presents a set of lectures on an important topic in our troubled times. Maria Montessori believed that if children in their early years do not experience a peaceful life dedicated to their own developmental goals, if they do not receive the benefit of a supportive educational environment created by understanding adults, an ever-widening rift will occur between the world of the adult and the child with disastrous consequences for the world.  A crusader for childhood and nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize, Maria Montessori’s life’s work in education was dedicated to the creating of a peaceful society in which the child is the agent of transformation.
