History Shows: Winning with Nonviolent Action by Rachel M. MacNair

Did you know that large nonviolent campaigns go back at least as far as the ancient Romans, whose workers staged a major walk-out in 494 B. C.? Did you know that several brutal dictatorships and entrenched empires have been toppled by nonviolent movements? Did you know this has been going on throughout history, all over the world, by people of different religions and backgrounds? Even governments have engaged in nonviolence. The first organized nonviolent army was by Muslims!

This book gives short stories of some of the major nonviolent actions that have succeeded. Each page has separate cases, so pages can be photocopied for history or other social studies classes to enrich understanding of different peoples and times. Young people can learn about the part of history that war-focused texts tend to overlook. Adults can be educated with an overview of the broad span of how well nonviolent action has worked in the past. Both can learn the basics of the history of nonviolent action.
