We are power : how nonviolent activism changes the world

Image of item
Book
"We Are Power brings to light the incredible individuals who have used nonviolent activism to change the world. The book explores questions such as what is nonviolent resistance and how does it work? In an age when armies are stronger than ever before, when guns seem to be everywhere, how can people confront their adversaries without resorting to violence themselves? Through key international movements-from the freedom of India from British rule to American labor unions and civil rights to actions taken by high school and college students around the world-this book discusses the components of nonviolent resistance.

The book includes endnotes, a bibliography, and an index"--
