Product Description


?If the world has indeed entered a new era, and if global communications make every conflict more visible and the use of military force seem more reprehensible to mankind at large, then the possiblities for successful nonviolent conflict would seem to have broadened. By analyzing the cases they present, Ackerman and Kruegler have done pioneer work in trying to show how such actions have a better chance of success.?-The Christian Science Monitor

This books insights are needed today in America. 18 Nov 1999
By Eric O'Keefe ( - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a terrific book which uses case studies to draw concrete lessons for peaceful political activity. Their application in places like Cuba and China is fairly obvious, but the lessons are needed by political activists in America as well. Election to the Congress today brings virtual life tenure; incumbents have rigged the system so that 395 of the 402 candidates running for reelection to the House in 1998 won.
Reformers need a way to revive the political system by working outside of conventional political channels, and this book offers guidelines.
The specific ideas for refining strategy can save reformers thousands of hours and dollars, and make the difference between success and failure. Very valuable.
