Speaking Out grew from an international peace project addressing issues of war, from personal effects of combat to institutional factors shaping armed conflicts. Drawing on the Sierra Leone civil war, this curriculum bridges local and global, placing gripping personal stories in an international landscape and highlighting creative capacities that survive war. Stories, games and role-playing are interwoven with lessons on colonialism, West African agricultural economy, international banking, diamond and arms trades and peace-building projects. The book includes projects for the classroom and beyond. It provides a method for instruction on war and peace, with options for high school or college use, and will be of interest to scholars in global studies, psychology, sociology, women's studies, communications and conflict resolution.

Speaking Out for Others Aug 9, 2007
Jan Haaken has committed her life to educating and helping others with a compassion that few offer in the field. Her research and work has opened a world to those who would not have found a voice. And it has opened a world to those who want to learn more about the world and the people in it. There is no easy look into the lives of women who suffer in Sierra Leone, Africa. Yet it brings each of us closer to understanding what is happening so far removed from our lives. Haaken and the others who worked on the book provide a unique look into the lives of women suffering from war and the effects of the global economy. While the book is designed for collegiate study, it educates everyone who reads it. The personal testimonies give a poignant account of life that must be addressed. The exercises create an opportunity to think about the affects of a global economy that disregards many in lieu of profits. Speaking Out is what we each must do after reading this book.
