Classic from Gene Sharp, professor of sociology. Scholarly trade paperback that's written work on how non-violent civil disobedience can replace war as a force for political change. This third part includes a comprehensive explanation of methods used in non-violence protest and civil disobedience. Pagination is peculiar as this is not a 900 page book. ( )

Part One of Sharp's classic trilogy on nonviolence. A Quaker favorite for 40 years! ( )

One of the most underappreciated books in political theory, this book deserves to be read and digested by all students of political power. The conclusion, for those who have not arrived at it themselves, is that the 'powerful' have power only as long as the 'weak' keep giving them the power. (Of course, this needs clarification in the case of those who already have their fingers on triggers of WMDs...) Gene Sharp is still alive, and deserves our admiration and support. ( )
