Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Patti Sylvester Spencer
This hefty reference work defines nonviolent action as "a range of methods for actively waging conflict without directly threatening or inflicting physical harm to human beings." Contributors include international scholars, professors, activists, researchers, and institute directors. While the volume covers events, groups, and individuals worldwide, there is heavy emphasis on the United States in the twentieth century. Categorical listings help readers locate organizations, methods of nonviolent action, individuals, campaigns, etc. A thorough index includes cross-references. Readers can explore "Guerrilla Theater," "Conscientious Objection," and the "Clamshell Alliance." They can meet Aung San Suu Kyi, the Berrigan brothers, and Desmond Tutu. Entries vary in length from a column to several pages. Each includes references for further reading and cross-references to related subjects. Some black-and-white photographs are scattered throughout the book. While terms are defined clearly, editors do not skimp on vocabulary or syntactical complexity; disadvantaged readers might need help with readability. Teachers and advanced students will appreciate the usefulness of this reference work and recognize its significance in a contemporary world of ubiquitous violence. Index. Photos.
