However, the words of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. have long overshadowed Chavez's contributions to the theory of nonviolence. The author seeks to elevate Chavez as an original thinker, providing an analysis of what Chavez called "the common sense of nonviolence." By engaging Chavez in dialogue with a variety of political theorists and philosophers, he demonstrates how Chavez developed distinct ideas about nonviolent theory that are timely for dealing with today's social and political issues, including racism, sexism, immigration, globalization, and political violence. -- Book jacket."@en
