Summary
"A Force More Powerful depicts how nonviolent sanctions - such as strikes, boycotts, and civil disobedience - can separate brutal regimes from their means of control. It reveals the inside stories of how ordinary people took extraordinary action and ended oppression, including the Danes' valiant resistance to the Nazis, Solidarity's defeat of Polish communism, civic action in Chile to remove a military dictator - and how nonviolent power continues to change the world today, from Burma to the Balkans." "Filled with insights about compelling individuals - such as Mohandas Gandhi, the young African Americans who sparked the civil rights revolution, Lech Walesa, the mothers of the disappeared in Argentina - this book is a companion to a new PBS series and a feature-length documentary of the same name now at film festivals world wide. At a time when violent force is still too often chosen as the means of conflict, this book meets a crucial need - by showing how people can achieve freedom and justice without using violence."--BOOK JACKET
