Editorial Reviews

Review

“Understanding nonviolence as an energy present in all of us is key to putting it to work in our own lives and in the troubled life of our world. This is a very powerful little volume—it will shake you up in wonderful ways!”
—Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org and author of Oil and Honey and The End of Nature

“In a few short pages, Michael Nagler has been able to present the accumulated wisdom of activists, prophets, and social theorists in a way that is powerfully instructive, accessible, and deeply moving.”
—Rabbi Michael Lerner, Editor-in-Chief, Tikkun, and Chair, Network of Spiritual Progressives 

“Only Michael Nagler could make such a cogent and persuasive case for nonviolence while delivering profound new insights, pearls of wisdom, and practical recommendations along the way.”
—Erica Chenoweth, Associate Professor, Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver, and Associate Senior Researcher, Peace Research Institute Oslo.
