|Introduction||Michael J. McFadden grew up in Brooklyn in the 1960s and graduated cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Manhattan College with a degree in both Peace Studies and Psychology. He went on to study statistics and propaganda analysis under a doctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton program in Peace Research. He left the University after two years to host a Quaker training center in non-violent social change and has worked at various levels in the areas of peace activism and social change ever since. His activities have ranged from public transportation advocacy to being commissioned by the Queen of England to conduct training workshops in Canada. Aside from writing, his recent endeavors have included such diverse activities as canvassing door-to-door for SANE/FREEZE and coordinating educa-tional conferences in the cyberspatial environs of America Online. Mr. McFadden currently lives and bicycles in West Philadelphia where he shares a small row house with a very noisy cat and a very quiet squirrel.|
