Peace: 50 Years of Protest, by Barry Miles
Peace: 50 Years of Protest, by Barry Miles

Peace: 50 Years of Protest, by Barry Miles. This biography of the peace symbol on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its creation begins with the mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki from atomic bombs dropped by the U.S. in 1945 that caused hundreds of thousands of deaths. Designed by British conscientious objector Gerald Holtom as the logo for a 1958 protest march from London to a secret nuclear weapons factory, the symbol was quickly adopted internationally as an anti-bomb and anti-war symbol through the Cold War, the Vietnam War to the war in Iraq. Its iconic power endures as a fashion as well as political statement. from washingtonpost.com
