In June of 1920, two gentlemen arrived in the Netherlands to hand deliver a communication from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, then head of the Bahá’í Faith, to the Executive Committee of the Central Organization for a Durable Peace at The Hague. This book examines the contents of these two Tablets, the historical circumstances that shaped nineteenth-century peace movements, and the catastrophic impact of the First World War. During this time, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was actively engaged in promoting a clear understanding of the Bahá’í perspective on peace. His example has continuing relevance for the state of the world and the discourse on peace in the twenty-first century.
