Description
 
Peter Ackerman & Jack DuVall. Tells how popular movements have used nonviolent weapons to overthrow dictators, obstruct military invaders, & secure human rights in country after over the past century. A gripping narrative of far-flung locations & history-changing crises, the book depicts how nonviolent sanctions -- such as strikes, boycotts, & civil disobedience -- can separate brutal regimes from their means of control. It reveals the inside stories of how ordinary people took extraordinary action & ended oppression, including the Danes’ valiant resistance to the Nazis, Solidarity’s defeat of Polish communism, civic action in Chile to remove a military dictator -- & how nonviolent power continues to change the world today, from Burma to the Balkans. A companion to a PBS series. Illustrated.
