Gwe, Young Man of New Guinea, a Novel Against Racism by Dr. Arnold Perey

This important novel is a must read by anthropologists, but every educator will find within its pages an understanding of the way of seeing, based on respect for difference, that can end racism.   Dr. Arnold Perey is a consultant on the faculty of the not-for-profit Aesthetic Realism Foundation in New York City.  He uses the knowledge of Aesthetic Realism, which was founded by the great American poet and educator, Eli Siegel, as the basis of his seeing of Gwe, a young man of New Guinea, with great respect.  From this, a deep friendship and a vivid sense of relation comes to be between them.  It is very moving, and I am proud to provide a link to learn more about this novel.
