Product description

Review

Anyone who doubts that community organizing is a significant part of the social fabric will find such assumptions dispelled by this intriguing and illuminating overview. --Booklist

Especially timely in the wake of protests across the United States, this book offers insight into how far we've come as a country and how much further we have to go. --Library Journal

This book is certain to become a seminal text. . . . [The authors] brilliantly illuminate the debates between advocates of mass mobilization, organization building, nonviolence, and disruption. Mark and Paul Engler have constructed a new intellectual platform to advance our understanding of these strategic dilemmas. --Frances Fox Piven, author of Challenging Authority and Poor People s Movements

Book Description

This powerful look at peaceful protest demystifies nonviolence as an important political tool, explores its historical roots, and reveals the careful planning behind these seemingly spontaneous movements-like Occupy Wall Street, the Umbrella Movement, the Climate March, the Millions March, and Tahrir Square-instructing potential activist as to how they can create lasting change.
