Way Out Of the Dead End
A Plea for Peace
Peace cannot be attained through minimal demands for short-term solutions to the problems of disarmament alone, but only through a general solution: 'The world is but one country and mankind its citizens.'
This book was written to present the Bahá'í Teachings on peace to non-Bahá'ís. Brief, witty and to the point, it is eminently suitable for use as a gift and for presentations.
We must make a great leap forward from the idea of unfettered sovereignty of national states to the principle of a world federation based on the consciousness of the unity of mankind - a consciousness born and created of the knowledge that all religions are essentially one, their founders all from God.

Huschmand Sabet was born in Tehran in 1931 and has lived in Germany since 1950. His studies were in electrical engineering, followed by philosophy and comparative religion at the University of Tübingen. He is well-known as a lecturer and writer on the Bahá'í Faith in the German-speaking countries of Europe, and his first book, The Heavens are Cleft Asunder, published in 1967, stimulated a wide public response.
"Sabet's book has started new directions in my thinking about peace. It is a new consciousness that becomes clear here, based on a totally different cultural view. No politician can afford to overlook a book like The Way out of the Dead End."
⏤ Franz Alt, author of Peace is Possible.
