Rezensionen
"At the end of the bloodiest century in human history it is vitalthat we learn how to solve problems and generate effective socialand political change non-violently. This book demonstrates thatmany brave people in diverse political situations are effectivebecause they have decided that the means are as important as theends, that one does not defeat evil with more evil, repression withrepression, violence with violence. Scholars and activists alikewill find much to ponder in this collection. I commend it toeveryone with an interest in the future of the human species."Kevin Clements, George Mason University

"This is an excellent collection of case studies knittedtogether by the editors' presentation of a sound set of theoreticalissues. Both help us understand the dynamics of nonviolent socialmovements." Paul Joseph, Tufts University

"A timely book." Pacifica Review
