Beyond The White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope celebrates Former President Jimmy Carter's post presidential service and the 25th Anniversary of The Carter Center. As recounted in his book, Mr. Carter, and his wife Rosalynn, founded The Carter Center in 1982. They now consider their work there to be the most fulfilling venture of their lives. This is a Memoir of Mr. Carter's humanitarian efforts throughout the past 25 years. He chronicles the principles of The Carter Center as characteristics that are inherent to all individuals. Ideals such as world peace, freedom, equal rights, personal faith and a forgiving heart are but a few descriptions noted when Mr. Carter speaks of his colleagues at The Carter Center. Beyond The White House reflects on the ways in which individuals, working together, can improve life quality world wide. Mr. Carter also takes time yearly to participate in the on going efforts to benefit any family in need through "Habitat For Humanity." This effort alone, not only provides for those in need, but demonstrates the ways in which people or a community can help themselves. The details regarding the use of research to maximize the most cost effective ways to use and account for this non-profit organization, clearly demonstrate the respect Mr. Carter has for any donations; be it money, time, materials, healthcare or "sweat equity." Although awarded The Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, Mr Carter and The Carter Center are a living legacy of great leadership. While it is a privilege for citizens everywhere to receive this book, a gift, that chronicles a life dedicated to those in need; it is a life changing experience to support and become part of The Carter Center.
