| A GUIDE TO CIVIL RESISTANCE: VOLUME 2|
A Bibliography of Social Movements and Nonviolent Action
Edited by April Carter, Howard Clark and Michael Randle
This second volume of A Guide to Civil Resistance covers nonviolent action campaigns in both democratic and undemocratic contexts.
It considers indigenous, feminist, LGBT and regional movements in different countries.
It provides a global perspective on struggles for peace, the environment and social justice.
It highlights a variety of nonviolent strategies and range of tactics from kiss-ins and public fasts to blockades, protest camps and civil disobedience.
This annotated bibliography has 844 references to scholarly, journalistic and activist sources. It concludes with a section on preparation and training. An addendum surveys key sources on nonviolent resistance and peace action in French, German and Spanish.
'This is a companion volume to one published in 2013. Both deserve to be on the shelf of - and regularly consulted by! - any student of social change.
Volume 2 follows a similar pattern: again framed as a bibliography, but in truth providing a window on a whole world of change rooted in non-violence. This time the emphasis is on more broadly based movements concerned with the environment, social justice, peace and many other processes (see "Chances for Peace, the second decade", 20 December 2012). Once more, the book combines over 800 references with thoughtful essays that connect the various themes, including a particularly valuable section on preparation and training.' Open Democracy
'Volume two, in fact, is a tour de force. With 844 references to key scholarly, journalistic, and activist sources, it provides a guide to some of the most important published works dealing with modern social movements. In addition, the introductory essays by the editors are models of clear, concise information about a wealth of nonviolent protest campaigns around the world.' Peace & Change.
