Published by A.J. MacDonald, Jr.
This book is divided into 20 lessons. The content covers three aspects of strategic non-violent conflict: I. Theory and its applications: The goal of these lessons is to provide a concrete framework for people to understand how nonviolent action works. First, all movements start with the desire for change, so we offer a methodology to help groups develop their vision for what they want to achieve (Lesson 1). We then address how nonviolent movements can gain the power to achieve that vision. By emphasizing that political power comes from people’s ongoing consent and obedience to their society’s political, economic, and social systems, it be- comes clear that nonviolent movements can gain power and create change by shifting people’s consent and obedience pat- terns (Lesson). In order to do this, nonviolent resisters must understand the roles that key organizations and institutions (which we call “pillars of support”) play in their society (Lesson 3), what people’s motivations are for consent and obedience (Lesson 4), how nonviolent movements produce change in so- ciety (Lesson 5), and the tactics and methods that nonviolent movements have at their disposal (Lesson 6).

This curriculum guide will be a valuablecompanion to new and experienced activists, as well as to others who wish tolearn about this subject.The authors combine classic insights about nonviolent conlict with new ideasbased on recent experience. The result is a synthesis that pushes the limits o what we thought nonviolent strategies were capable o achieving.The material covered includes time-tested analyses o power, dierent methodso nonviolent action, and ways to create a strategic plan or developing andmobilizing a movement. In addition, the authors include new material abouthow to:chart a movement’s history and progress (Chapter 8)• use marketing, branding, and eective communication techniques in amovement (Chapters 9 and 10)address the eects o ear on a movement’s members (Chapter 13)develop security measures within a movement (Chapter 14)• manage a movement’s material resources, human resources, and time(Advanced Chapters -4)Throughout these topics, the authors emphasize pragmatic learning and drawon their own experience applying these ideas in their own struggles. The resultis a versatile resource and an excellent training tool.Activists using this resource will likely want to study and adapt it in ways thatbest serve the speciic goals, needs, and opportunities o their circumstances.This is entirely appropriate. This impressive text should not be seen as a ormulaor how to wage nonviolent struggle, but rather a set o ideas that can helppeople think about and analyze nonviolent conlict.
