Recommended to AJ by: South End Press
Read in June, 2009

This book helped confirm my nagging feeling that nonviolent activism doesn't really help further any type of real revolutionary agenda. The author does a great job explaining why this is so and what alternatives exist to counter ineffective pacifism.

Mike huh - this is so synchronicitous (and I think I just made up that word) considering what happened in Tehran 6/20. One on a similar topic is Pacifism as Pathology, by the controversial (and somewhat discredited) Ward Churchill.
