HANDBOOK for NONVIOLENT CAMPAIGNS. 2014. War Resisters’ International London, UK. ISBN 978-0-903517-28-7
“…our working definition of nonviolence is based on a desire to end violence…without committing further violence. This handbook was written by people from around the world …” from the introduction
This is a collaborative work with many authors and contributors in itself a remarkable feat, so many stories, images and guidelines, but they all keep the focus on the importance of nonviolence. Accounts of specific campaigns from Chile to South Korea and issues from femicide to nuclear installations the world over enliven the pages with words and images of originality and courage. These real life stories set the scene for excellent, exercises in strategy and action planning, role playing and finally, producing your own handbook, specific to place and purpose. This is a useful reference to return to time and again for insight and guidance; it should be in the library of every activists and peace and justice organization – it is a gem.
