This is an excellent reader. Well edited, structured and argued for. One of my favorites in the nonviolence canon. Excellent as a textbook.

This book - used as a textbook by many in the field - is nevertheless quite an accessible read for anyone interested in nonviolence and its major theorists over the decades. Most of the authors come from the late 19th century through the present, but older world scriptural references are incorporated as well. It is broad in its scope, and highly recommended as a general theory source.
