Dear GHA Members,

The updated Contents of the Global Peace Science book was approved! We have not 
received a single NO in voting on it. It is published here: 

I am happy to congratulate you on this and sincerely thank the participants of 
the discussion and approval.

In the Contents following changes were made:
1. Norman Kurland was removed from the authors upon request.
2. We invite the co-authors of the following articles:
Erica Lazarova. Numa Pompilius: The Oldest Example of Social Peace from Harmony
Alexander Subetto. Noospheric Paradigm of Global Peace Science
3. We have included two new articles of Maria Cristina Azcona:
Art, Literature and Culture for Global Peace from Harmony 
From Inner Peace to World Peace in GPS 
4. We have included three new articles of Leo Semashko
Theories of Social Justice from Inequality with Plato and from Equality of 
Harmony: Kant, John Rawls and others
Singapore: Social Peace and Prosperity from Religious Harmony
Social Governance Way "Peace from Harmony" as Supreme Integration Principle in 

We are pleased to invite our two well-known artists: Lida Sherafatmand Celia 
Altshuler take part in the decoration of the two inner covers of GPS book on a 
competitive basis through creative thinking by harmonious spheres, which I 
wrote to you about a month ago.

We also invite all authors and the interested to participate in the GHA new 
book to send your articles to me a public way (through gha@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) to 
ensure transparency and democracy of our collective creative process. Let me 
remind you: the deadline for articles is November 30, 2013.

Now we have all the necessary methodological, informational and organizational 
prerequisites for the hard and long work with articles for this book in 
creative collaborative editing and discussing articles in accordance with the 
Rules, to ensure the high scientific quality of each article. To do this, each 
article should have brief analysis of the GHA sources and other literature, 
bibliography, brief biographical note, etc. in accordance with the requirements 
in the Rules here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585 

Please misunderstand me. These Rules and Requirements are not personal whim. 
They are approved by the GHA norms of our joint creative work. I, as the only 
editor, just not physically able to write for more than 60 articles in the GHA 
new book the analysis of sources and other literature, your biographical 
information and ensure compliance for every article with 20 Requirements. So, 
ultimately, I will refuse to publish all articles that do not meet the Rules 
and Requirements in them. As you know, these are the conditions of work of any 
editor in any scientific journal and in any publisher. I, like you, work on a 
full voluntary basis and have no assistants, as well as strength, health, and 
time to perform for each author this work, which requires the Rules and 
Requirements in them. I hope you understand this, and we will respect and 
cherish each other in accordance with these Rules.

I'll start my editorial mission in November and in the sequence of articles 
corresponding to the book logic, so do not rush me, please, - for each article 
its time will come. We have for this work about 6 months, i.e. we should finish 
around 10 articles a month. At the same time, I have to write my own articles 
and chapters in this book. I will be forced to abandon all other works in the 
GHA and all letters are not related to the GHA new book until May 2014. So 
please excuse me if I do not respond to other letters out of this book.

Hoping for your understanding and a friendly, mutually respectful and patient 
work with the author's articles. Thank you. 

With love, best harmony wishes,
