Active nonviolence is the basis for the culture of peace now struggling to replace the old culture of war. Here is a studious, penetrating examination of the many sides of nonviolence. Students and civil society activists will benefit from this book.
Hon. Douglas Roche, former Canadian Senator and Ambassador for Disarmament
Nonviolence is the most important--and most neglected--path forward for humanity, and this breathtaking new collection offers many new insights into the way of nonviolence for our troubled world. I hope many will read it, discuss it, and share it widely so that together we can 'advance nonviolence' for positive social transformation for justice, disarmament and peace. We can all become nonviolent. We can all work for a more nonviolent world. We can all join the global grassroots movement for a new future of nonviolence. This wise book is a gift that can help us with the task ahead.
John Dear, activist, author, and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee
A book that will prove useful for a wide range of readers. Those interested in nonviolence will find in it a thought-provoking and stimulating read, one that deepens their practice. Educators will have another potential text to use, and certainly a fine resource from which to draw readings. Moreover, activists interested in effective social change will find fodder for improving their work.
