Abstract:

"The Power of Nonviolence, the first anthology of alternatives to war with a historical perspective - with an introduction by Howard Zinn about September 11 and the U.S. response to the terrorist attacks - presents the most salient and persuasive arguments for peace in the last 2,500 years of human history. Arranged chronologically, covering the major conflagrations in the world. The Power of Nonviolence is a compelling step forward in the study of pacifism, a timely anthology that fills a void for people looking for responses to crisis that are not based on guns or bombs."--Jacket.
