Viking economics : how the Scandinavians got it right - and how we can, too by George Lakey( Book )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In America, many Democrats invoke Scandinavia as a promised land of equality, while most Republicans fear it as a hotbed of liberty-threatening socialism. But the left and right can usually agree on one thing: that the Nordic system is impossible to replicate here at home. The US is too big, or too individualistic, or too puritan, or too, something. Whatever the reason, it's impossible, and we shouldn't bother to try. Enter George Lakey. A longtime activist and academic, Lakey has spent decades studying the economies of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland, and in Viking Economics, he reveals that Scandinavia's deep commitment to the welfare state is much more recent than we think. Not long ago, Scandinavia was a far more unequal place, with a much weaker commitment to the social welfare of its citizens. There's nothing inherently Scandinavian about greater equality. So why not try it here?"--

How we win : a guide to nonviolent direct action campaigning by George Lakey( Book )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's new direct action campaigns require a new, down-to-earth guide to effective campaigning. George Lakey's How We Win is that timely guide. The Women's March of January 21, 2017, was estimated at four million people - the largest assembly of activist protest in U.S. history. Many of those assembled were in the streets for the first time, or returning after a period of inactivity. Lakey, a lifelong activist, helps us understand our political moment (extreme polarization, ripe for political change), teaches us how to plan a campaign to overcome that polarization, demonstrates how to launch these ideas into action, and shows us how to grow and sustain our movements. This is what democracy looks like"--
Nonviolent action: how it works by George Lakey( Book )

6 editions published between 1963 and 1971 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Waging peace : global adventures of a lifelong activist by David Hartsough( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hartsough knows how to get in the way. He has used his body to block Navy ships headed for Vietnam and trains loaded with munitions on their way to El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has crossed borders to meet the enemy in East Berlin, Castro's Cuba, and present-day Iran. He has marched with mothers confronting a violent regime in Guatemala and stood with refugees threatened by death squads in the Philippines. Hartsough's stories inspire, educate, and encourage readers to find ways to work for a more just and peaceful world. Inspired by the examples of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., Hartsough has spent his life experimenting with the power of active nonviolence. Engaging stories on every page provide a peace activist's eyewitness account of many of the major historical events of the past 60 years, including the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War movements in the United States as well as the little-known but equally significant nonviolent efforts in the Soviet Union, Kosovo, Palestine, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines. Waging Peace is a testament to the difference one person can make; however, it is more than one man's memoir: it shows how this struggle is waged all over the world by ordinary people committed to ending the spiral of violence and war

This manual contains an outline for a fifteen hour training course intended for hypothetical peace groups and includes skills and techniques for trainers to transmit to adult participants.

Five chapters include information on: 1) planning and conducting guidelines for trainers in nonviolent direct action; 2) directing and evaluating role plays; 3) and 4) understanding and teaching function roles of group members and strategy and tactics; and, 5) leading and participating in direct action involving street speaking and leafleting. The material in the manual is suggestive rather than prescriptive. Trainers are encouraged to adapt methods and materials to needs of the particular group. (SJM)
Opening space for democracy : third-party nonviolent intervention : curriculum and trainer's manual by Daniel Hunter( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a world with increasing violence, there is an increasing interest in civil society defending civil society through nonviolent intervention. As a new and growing field, it has been called third-party nonviolent intervention (TPNI). This publication is a result of a two-year project to research what organisations are doing to train people for TPNI and what other organizations who also place people in high conflict situations have to teach us. By asking dozens of organisations around the world what they consider most important for field workers to know, the authors were able to compile a list of core proficiencies. This curriculum was field-tested in 2003, and out of it came hundreds of improvements that are reflected in this current version
