In praise of Dallmayr’s 2004 work, Peace Talks - Who Will Listen? Calvin O. Schrag of Purdue University wrote, “A vibrant contemporary voice in the proliferating multicultural conversation of mankind, Professor Dallmayr makes the strongest case yet for a peace-making culture that would be able to restrain the war machine mentality of our present age. The debt that we all owe Professor Dallmayr has increased immeasurably with the publication of this, his most recent volume.”
