The Way Of Peace is an exposition of proutist revolutionary strategy. Perhaps due to the nature of the content, the book is written under a pen name, "C.J.S.".[1]

Content

At the very beginning of the first chapter, a broad spiritual perspective on revolutionary struggle is put forth:

All of human existence can be understood in terms of a perpetual war between two forces – the force of light and love versus the force of darkness and selfishness. In one corner we find the Divine Thief Whose aim is to steal from us all our worldly attachments and all our vainglory, and in the other corner sits human ego which wants to appropriate to itself anything and everything, especially those things which most obviously belong to the Cosmic Supreme.[1]

The rest of the book examines various aspects of revolution, from the abstract to the practical. The book contains 10 chapters:[1]

Soon the day will come when the moralists of the world are united in their activities, well organized, and courageous. That long awaited day is not too distant now, and with its advent the dawn of a glorious new era of progressive socialism will be just around the corner – humanity will take its first deep breath of fresh air.
