"The early years of the twenty-first century have rekindled public and scholarly dialogue as to the relevance of the efficacy and power of nonviolence. This new volume, featuring a modern-day who’s who of nonviolent thinkers, brings fresh new perspectives to the urgency and practicality of alternative recourses to violent conflict."—Anthony Jenkins, Vice President for Academic Affairs, National Peace Academy

"The most vital and promising approach to peace. It should find a place on any and all lists of essential works in the field."—Betty A. Reardon, Founding Director Emerita, International Institute on Peace Education

"I hope that these essays reach educators and activists in a wide range of disciplines. By emphasizing mutual aid and empathy as key factors of human social development, contributors to this book help equip us to nonviolently resist corporate greed and war."—Kathy Kelly, Co-Coordinator, Voices for Creative Nonviolence
