about this item
Volume two of A Guide to Civil Resistance seeks to provide an introduction to the history of major social movements—including Occupy and the Global Justice Movement, major green campaigns, peace and antiwar resistance, and feminist and LGBT struggles—over the last 70 years, and to signpost contemporary developments in these movements. It provides brief background summaries and a range of references from movement periodicals and websites, scholarly journals, and books by activists as well as academic studies. With emphasis on nonviolent action and protest, the reference includes material on conventional political action and legal action, as well as literature providing some general historical and theoretical background.
