About this product
- DescriptionThere are numerous examples throughout history of effective nviolent action. Nonviolent protesters defied the Soviet Empire's communist rulers, Gandhi's nviolent revolution defeated the British Empire, and Martin Luther King Jr.'s peaceful civil-rights crusade changed American history. Recent scholarship shows that nviolent revolutions against injustice and dictatorship are actually more successful than violent campaigns. In this book, ted theologian and bestselling author Ron Sider argues that the search for peaceful alternatives to violence is t only a practical necessity in the wake of the twentieth century--the most bloody in human history--but also a moral demand of the Christian faith. He presents compelling examples of how nviolent action has been practiced in history and in current social-political situations to promote peace and oppose injustice, showing that this path is a successful and viable alternative to violence.
