He later worked with the Humanity Fund, which financed groups tackling projects that aimed to augment local self-reliance and neighborhood power ... was on the staff of the World Policy Institute, during which time he completed his first book, Peace and World Order Studies (which has since become a standard reference for college and university curricula) ... served as executive director of Planetary Citizens, a U.N. project initiated by Norman Cousins ... and cofounded the Business Initiative, which allows corporate leaders to explore the views of the alternative culture. He has lectured to college audiences and professional groups throughout the country ... has written for numerous national and international publications (and has a new book, The Eye of the Storm, coming out in the spring of 1984) ... and is currently a director for Liberty Media, which has an hour-long television special in the works on interconnectedness and the emerging new world view..."
