Counterpower: How to Make Change Happen by Tim Gee

This timely book argues that no major movement has ever been successful without counterpower, or the power that the "have-nots" can use to remove the power of the "haves."

Investigating the history and tactics of major movements of the past and today's global justice and human rights movements, Tim Gee demonstrates what works and what doesn't work. In showing how counterpower can be strategically applied, Gee has created an inspiration for activists and an invaluable resource for teachers and students of social change.

Tim Gee is a writer and communications specialist working with campaigning organizations in the United Kingdom and worldwide.
