The book This Is An Uprising: How Nonviolent Revolt is Reshaping the Twenty-First Century by Paul and Mark Engler is thought-provoking and well organized. Before reading this book, I didn’t know much about nonviolent protest and did not know how much organizing actually goes into the process. Since this book covered every aspect of civil resistance, I have acquired a deep understanding of strategic nonviolence, and feel like a partial-expert. Paul and Mark Engler do an incredible job of presenting their point of view, and I really enjoyed the real-life examples. If the book had no examples, I don't think I would understand the topic as well as I do now.
