A Force More Powerful by Peter Ackerman and Jack Duvall
A century of nonviolent conflict.

In this tour de force, Peter Ackerman, an authority on nonviolent strategy, and Jack Duvall, a veteran writer, tell how popular movements have used nonviolent weapons to overthrow dictators, obstruct military invaders, and secure human rights in country after country over the past century.

A gripping narrative of far-flung locations and history-changing crises, A Force More Powerful depicts how nonviolent sanctions - such as noncooperation, strikes, boycotts, and civil disobedience - can separate brutal regimes from their means of control. It reveals the inside stories of how ordinary people took extraordinary action to end oppression - including the Danes’ valiant resistance to the Nazis, Solidarity’s defeat of Polish communism, and civic action in Chile to remove a military dictator - and how nonviolent power continues to change the world today, from Burma to the Balkans.

Filled with dramatic portraits of compelling individuals - such as Mahandas Gandhi, Lech Walesa, the young African Americans who sparked the civil rights revolution, and the mothers of the disappeared in Argentina - this book is a companion to a new documentary television series. At a time when violent force is all too often chosen as the means of conflict, this book meets a crucial need - by showing how people can achieve freedom and justice without using violence.
