In this tour de force, Ackerman, a respected authority on nonviolent conflict, and DuVall, a veteran writer, explore the ideas lying at the root of how popular movements have used non-violent action to overthrow dictators, frustrate military invaders, and secure human rights in country after country and decade after decade. A gripping story, the book focuses on movements built from the ground up, including India's movement toward independence under Gandhi; Poland's Solidarity strikes, which laid the foundation for the fall of communism; and the lunch counter sit-ins in Nashville, which turned our attention toward the beginnings of the civil rights movement.
