About this product
- DescriptionNonviolence is t the recourse of the weak but actually calls for an uncommon kind of strength; it is t a refraining from something but the engaging of a positive force, rewned peace activist Michael Nagler writes. Here he offers a step-by-step guide to creatively using nviolence to confront any problem and to build change movements capable of restructuring the very bedrock of society. Nagler identifies some specific tactical mistakes made by unsuccessful nviolent actions such as the Tiananmen Square demonstrations and the Occupy protests and includes stories of successful nviolent resistance from around the world, including an example from Nazi Germany. And he shows that nviolence is more than a tactic it is a way of living that will enrich every area of our lives.
