Dear Michael H. and Martin,

I checked with Human Systems Dynamics Institute in Minnesota who 
published the 2nd edition of The Practice of Peace (this is the version 
that HO has on his website to download 

the publisher still has some some of the books and is ready to provide 
them, here is the contact email address rholladay at hsdinstitute.org

If you, Martin, are in Europe, you can also get a copy directly from me 
(I have a number of the books in my office); or order it from the online 
bookstore of my publisher in Berlin
who also has the German versions both in paper or as an ebook

The story of how "The Practice of Peace" originally did not find a 
publisher and how HO liberated it so any of us could simply print and 
distribute it, is one of the great stories that demonstrate the spirit 
of os-workers around the globe. It was simultaneously published by 
colleagues within weeks after HO let go of it in Germany, USA, Canada, 
Australia, Sweden, Haiti, Taiwan and Israel. I wonder in what languages 
it is available other than English and German.

Apart from all that, Pop is a gem. When I get to feel out of whack or in 
chaos, I read in it... for instance in Chapter VI where you can find 
some guiding points for peacemakers:

Never work hareder than you have to.
Don't fix it if it ain't broke.
Never delude yourself into thinking you are in control.

Greetings from Berlin
