Michael N. Nagler, 2001. Is There No Other Way? The Search for a Nonviolent Future.
This is an excellent book to start a discussion about how non-violent tactics can be used to achieve peace and justice. A must read. Some important points; The most successful non-violent campaigns require training and discipline. Terrible situations such as military dictatorships require powerful non-violent campaigns for success. Even if non-violent campaigns fail to achieve their stated objectives, they have positive results. Even if violence achieves its stated goal, it has bad consequences. Non-violence can work even in the most awful circumstances, such as Nazi Germany. Meditation is an important component of non-violent training.Devin Carroll
