For anyone interested in understanding how nonviolent social movements are born, evolve and either fail or succeed, this is the book for you The Engler brothers walk readers through some of the most inspiring movements and discuss, with both anecdotal and empirical evidence, how these movements either changed the world or petered out and died ugly deaths There is real research quoted in this book and you might be surprised to find that most social movements need only 3.5% of the population to For anyone interested in understanding how nonviolent social movements are born, evolve and either fail or succeed, this is the book for you The Engler brothers walk readers through some of the most inspiring movements and discuss, with both anecdotal and empirical evidence, how these movements either changed the world or petered out and died ugly deaths There is real research quoted in this book and you might be surprised to find that most social movements need only 3.5% of the population to be engaged to really become a force to be reckoned with As Bernie s populist movement gains steam, this book will help put all of the idiosyncrasies into perspective Excellent, excellent book This book is a trifle wordy and dry, but well worth the effort to read It begins with Gandhi and brings us right up to the Occupy movement, using familiar examples along the way to show what works and what doesn t work and why I found it both enlightening and encouraging It s good to know that an unpopular government cannot stand against massive civil disobedience Resistance is NOT futile Resist Fairly good guide to nonviolent political action tactics and strategy Using famous case studies like India s independence movement and the struggles of the civil rights movement to show what devices and strategies to employ to make gains for your movement Some nuts and bolts but also big picture abstractions as well. I loved this book A lot of us who have been involved in organizing that felt like we were eking out incremental wins, and then get caught up in a wave of movement activity like Occupy wondered how it all worked I feel like this books goes a long way to spelling out how social change occurs that lets us be farambitious and effective.I m excited to go home and organize a study group of other activists to talk about how to apply the lessons. A laborious read with nothing new to add on the subject. An extremely important and readable synthesis of several major thinkers in the field of civil resistance This book fairly outlines the longstanding debate between structural organizing and mass movements as drivers of social change, and it details a compelling and emergent fusion of these schools momentum driven organizing This book isn t particularly dense or theoretical, so it s a great place to jump into this area of study if it is new to you or if you are looking for leads to further r An extremely important and readable synthesis of several major thinkers in the field of civil

Nonviolent Revolt Is Shaping the Twenty-First Century ☲ There is a craft to uprising and this craft can change the worldFrom protests around climate change and immigrant rights, to Occupy, the Arab Spring, and BlackLivesMatter, a new generation is unleashing strategic nonviolent action to shape public debate and force political change When mass movements erupt onto our television screens, the media consistently portrays them as being spontaneous and unpredictable Yet, in this book, Mark and Paul Engler look at the hidden art behind such outbursts of protest, examining core principles that have been used to spark and guide moments of transformative unrestWith incisive insights from contemporary activists, as well as fresh revelations about the work of groundbreaking figures such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr Gene Sharp, and Frances Fox Piven, the Englers show how people with few resources and little conventional influence are engineering the upheavals that are reshaping contemporary politicsNonviolence is usually seen simply as a philosophy or moral code This Is an Uprising shows how it can instead be deployed as a method of political conflict, disruption, and escalation It argues that if we are always taken by surprise by dramatic outbreaks of revolt, we pass up the chance to truly understand how social transformation happens The Cinderella Act to Occupy

actually never heard of it until a member of the Sunrise Movement recommended it to me, and much of the ideas and strategies discussed are what Sunrise is doing to fight inaction on the climate crisis Like many others, before I read the book I appreciated the idea of nonviolent action in principle, but didn t really feel it accomplished much other than maybe some small, incremental change even the civil rights movement gained attention only after violence from Bull Connor and the police in Birmingham, for example But this book does a great and detailed job explaining not only why nonviolence is obviously themoral path, but theeffective one too and with real world examples, both current and historical My only complaint about it is that it could be repetitive at times, which was good for driving points home, but I think the authors editors could have tightened up some of the points, which would make the book slightly shorter.This book is a great guide and blueprint both for movements trying to create change, and for those who are trying to understand how that change can be made in our ever changing world Highly recommended A great book that explains the basics of community organizing and non violent resistance It provides ample historical explanations and assessments A bit academic, but worth the read. Very impressive strategic reflection on the social movements of the past decades, offering some basic blueprints for delivering social change.
