NEW YORK (PRWEB) February 02, 2016
From senseless and merciless enmity to hatred and bloodshed, the world suffers unfathomable human problems. Author Kadir I. Natho realized the need to revert to ancient human teachings of mutual respect to help solve some of the problems most are facing now. In his book, “Adyghe Khabze, Customs and Traditions” (published by Xlibris), he discusses the priceless human moral values – the key for the solution of human misunderstandings.
In addition to its ancient historical and cultural value, “Adyghe Khabze, Customs and Traditions” is about the priceless ancient methods of upbringing of children of the nation - the actual unwritten code of conduct of its people - that brought up men and women, who were celebrated for millennia for their valor, trustworthiness and loyalty, dignity, high moral values, self respect, mutual help and understanding, based on respect to elders and love and care for children.
Natho believes that some of the methods of the upbringing of children would seem outmoded to modern readers and perhaps inapplicable to modern problems, but in general they will help the modern society to reevaluate most of their senseless interrelationships which are mainly based on their erroneous deep-seated ethnic, racial, national and religious prejudices.
An enlightening and valuable read, “Adyghe Khabze, Customs and Traditions” hopes to build the foundations of peace and harmony of men in the world.
