Author believes that democracy is the best form of government under the present world conditions. Happenings in eastern Europe and elsewhere have proved it. Democracy teaches us to be tolerant and just. Wars do not stitch countries together; rather they tear them apart. Every World War has led the countries to form some kind of a world government--The League of Nations after the First World War and The United Nations after the Second. Author's convictions that wars are destructive and they have not solved human problems, nor will they be ever able to do so, echo in his poems. They also bring out the values of democracy.

--Stephen Gill is a compassionate and intelligent writer and both of these strengths are reflected in THE DOVE OF PEACE. These poems express a longing for a time when all men will strive for a better world, but they are not unworldly poems. They recognize and name the presence of evil, though they dream of love. They strike a balance between knowledge of this world and the aspiration for a better one without becoming either cynical in the face of one reality, or naive in their desire for an unachieved ideal.
(John B. Lee, award-winning author of several collections)
