Nonviolent theorist Gene Sharp on NPR

    Last week on WBUR, Boston’s NPR station, there was a nice interview with Gene Sharp and his assistant at his office. In the interview, he discusses his take on nonviolent action, what’s going on in Iran, and far-left critics who think he’s a government agent. The segment can be streamed off of the station’s website.
