            The ABC of Harmony was prepared within GHA in 2011 and published in early February 2012 in Russian in St. Petersburg and in English in New Delhi, India. Among its 76 co-authors are prominent scientists, peacemakers, artists and politicians: former President of India, Dr. Abdul Kalam; architect of Ronald Reagans economic reform, Dr. Norman Kurland; head of the international organization of doctors (IPPNW), which received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985, Prof. Ernesto Kahan; Chancellor of the Pedagogical IASE Deemed Gandhi University, Kanak Mal Dugar; Catholic Professor and the UN agent, Dr. François Houtart; President of World Esperanto Association, Prof. Renato Corsetti; President of International Association of Educators for World Peace, Prof. Charles Mercieca; President of International Forum for Literature and Culture of Peace, Prof. Ada Aharoni; Secretary General of "World Constitution and Parliament" Association, Prof. Glen Martin; prominent Russian Professors: Vladimir Bransky, Gregory Tulchinsky, Alexander Subetto, Dimitry Ivashintsov and many others. Five co-authors have the GHA highest honorary title: World Harmony Creator as explained at http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=513.

All of the co-authors, as well as all of the GHA members, are active peacemakers, each in his/her field. This is reflected o­n the GHA website Peace from Harmony (www.peacefromharmony.org), which was visited by more than 3 million people in 7 years.

The ABC of Harmony is the first book of this kind in the world and the first global textbook o­n social harmony for the all nations, governments, presidents and the United Nations. The ABC of Harmony is an unprecedented in world history scientific and spiritual peacemaking instrument to achieve world peace from conscious social harmony through a global harmonious education and enlightenment in this ABC.

 The presentation of this book at the International Seminar of Teachers in New Delhi o­n February 11, 2012, marked the beginning of a new era of humanity: the Age of Harmonious Enlightenment and Education, which aims to overcome the total ignorance of the past history in regard to social harmony (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=511).

The ABC of Harmony creation is the beginning of this Age. Its next step is the development of various training courses for various educational institutions: school, college and university o­n the basis of this textbook. Dozens of educators, members of the GHA from dozens of countries, is now preparing training courses in various social sciences o­n the ABC basis. The proposed lecture course below is the first among them.

The third step is the creation of "The ABC of Harmony" Department in any college and university of the world to read courses in various social sciences o­n the ABC basis, as well as for the training of teachers. The GHA was created in 2011 project: "Department of Harmonious Civilization" (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=465). Both of these departments, in fact, are identical, are called differently o­nly, expressing different emphases: The ABC of Harmony as an educational tool for harmonious civilization, which, in turn, is a practical embodiment of The ABC of Harmony.
