Recently, advocates have applied these methods and strategies with great success in Serbia and Ukraine. In his most recent work, Dr. Sharp shows how to strategically plan nonviolent struggle and make it more effective.
In Waging Nonviolent Struggle, Dr. Sharp documents 23 significantâ€”and often successfulâ€”20th century nonviolent struggles in a range of cultural and political contexts, and reaffirms nonviolent action as a realistic and powerful alternative to both passivity and violence.
Building on the power analysis of his seminal Politics of Nonviolent Action, Dr. Sharp coherently integrates his theories into praxis, with a vitality tested on the frontlines, often under extreme violence.
Any serious studentâ€”or practitionerâ€”of nonviolent struggle will find this book an invaluable resource. Skeptics will be compelled to seriously consider nonviolent actionâ€™s viability.
Todayâ€™s world is in desperate need of realistic alternatives to violent conflict. Waging Nonviolent Struggle demonstrates that these alternatives exist.
