“We have a thousand journalists and ten thousand novelists covering the art, science, and business of making war, and thus it has been for centuries. But though nonviolence is used in far more cases and can work much better, almost no one takes the time to seriously analyze how movements and campaigns work (or don’t). Waging Nonviolence is unique, critically useful–and conducted in the right spirit, equal parts rigor and love.”
Bill McKibben, author, educator, environmentalist and founder of

Jamila Raqib, former Executive Director of the Albert Einstein Institution
