5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read That Challenges Common Assumptions, 30 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Based on comprehensive reviews of civil society resistance events over more than a hundred years the authors successfully argue that non-violent resistance is at least as successful as violent resistance. The main factors are analyzed and the book allows the reader to develop further understanding of the mechanisms of resistance. "Why Civil Resistance Works" is strongly recommended to all that relate to fundamental changes in societies around the world.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't have time to offer a proper review and have only just got this book so not fully read yet, but what is immediately evident about its usefulness is that it is research based, with statistical analysis, graphical presentation, etc of what has been working, and not just narrative description (though there are also case studies with that, including Iran, Burma and the Intifada. We need a bit of the number crunching as well as the inspirational right brain stuff. Don't be put off by the cover, however. Can't think why they chose such prickly image, but probably the marketing department.
