BETWEEN AUGUST 4TH AND lOTH, THE CITIES OF HIROSHIMA ANDNagasaki sponsored the First World Conference of Mayors for Peacethrough Inter-City Solidarity. CID's President, Michael Shuman, attendedthe conference as a representative of the mayor of Palo Alto. WhenShuman returned, he prepared this highly personal chronicle of what theconference was like-what the mayors experienced, what they discussed, and how CID managed to nudge the conference to "institutionalize" itself. The report is long, involved, and sometimes evenemotionally wrenching, but we think it's well worth your reading time.
