"This biography of Sherwood brilliantly demonstrates the complexity of pacifism as a personal belief system.... The writing is wonderful, the chapters are nicely balanced, and the organization of the material on both the personal life and the writings is excellent." - Melanie Gustafson, Department of History, University of Vermont "This reader-friendly book written in lucid, accessible prose is an extraordinary accomplishment.... Alonso's handling of Sherwood's journey provides pleasure, joy, and engagement for anyone interested in pacifism, war, peace, politics, theater, history, and culture." - Howard Stein, emeritus, Center for Theatre Studies, Columbia University"
