A contribution to the emerging literature on educating dignifiers. This is a groundbreaking book on the many dimensions of dignity. Over the past ten years, the author has created a kaleidoscope of rhymed reflections to share his thought-and-action-provoking perceptions of dignity. Dignity is multifaceted. Dignity has psychological, social, political, scientific, and spiritual aspects. Dignity is communicative, creative, and educational in its thrust. Dignity is related to the many challenges that flow from economic, environmental, organizational, globalizing, and peace-building processes and efforts. Peace, nonviolence, and nonkilling are intimately intertwined with dignity. And dignity is violated through processes of humiliation and degradation. Francisco Cardoso Gomes de Matos is a peace linguist and educator. He is professor emeritus at the Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, Brazil.
