Description
							Despite the fact that two of the 20th century's most monumental campaigns for social change, the civil rights movement and the drive for Indian independence, achieved their aims through nonviolent action, the world continues to view nonviolence as a passive and largely ineffectual tactic, all show and no substance. In this powerful audiobook, renowned peace activist Michael Nagler proves precisely the opposite: nonviolence is in fact an aggressive and highly effective approach. 'Nonviolence is not the recourse of the weak but actually calls for an uncommon kind of strength; it is not a refraining from something but the engaging of a positive force', Nagler says. But it demands tremendous courage and discipline and needs to be carefully thought through.
