By George Greene VINE VOICE on February 15, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book can be read on more than one level. The author was a follower of Gandhi and participated in non-violent direct action against the British. He wrote this book about non-violent direct action as a thesis in the United States. It was published in 1939. CORE turned parts of this book into a pamphlet to teach Civil Disobedience to the African American community before the late Martin Luther King, Jr. arrived on the historical scene.

Above all else, what I like about this book is that it teaches one how to practice non-violent direct action. As Krishnalal Shridhrarani outlined the steps to engage in such a fashion, it reminds me that these techniques are available to today's citizens to protest the gridlock in Washington, DC. We can use them again as they were used in 1963's March on Washington for jobs and justice.

One must take seriously though how demanding these principles are and how demanding the discipline is to engage in this type of protest.
