Twenty-one years ago, at a friend's request, a Massachusetts professor sketched out a blueprint for nonviolent resistance to repressive regimes. It would go on to be translated, photocopied, and handed from one activist to another, traveling from country to country across the globe: from Iran to Venezuela -- where both countries consider Gene Sharp to be an enemy of the state -- to Serbia; Afghanistan; Vietnam; the former Soviet Union; China; Nepal; and, more recently and notably, Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and Syria, where it has served as a guiding light of the Arab Spring. This short guide to overthrowing a dictatorship by nonviolent means lists 198 specific methods to consider, depending on the circumstances: sit-ins, popular nonobedience, selective strikes, withdrawal of bank deposits, revenue refusal, walkouts, silence, and hunger strikes

GANDHI WIELDS THE WEAPON OF MORAL POWER' (THREE CASE HISTORIES) This book reports facts and nothing but facts-facts which have all been published before. And yet it is a truly important work destined to have a great educational effect. It is a history of India's peaceful. struggle for liberation under Gandhi's guidance. All that happened there came about in our time-under our very eyes. What makes the book into a most effective work of art is simply the choice and arrangement of the facts reported. It is the skill of the born historian, in whose hands the various threads are held together and woven into a pattern from which a complete picture emerges
Making the abolition of war a realistic goal by Gene Sharp( Book )

12 editions published between 1980 and 1993 in English and French and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a means of counteracting current widespread acceptance of war and war preparations with a sense of resignation and hopelessness/powerlessness, this monograph proposes a nonviolent strategy by which citizens can discourage or thwart either internal usurpation or external invasion/occupation. Designated Civilian Based Defense (cbd), this system is based on prepared protest, noncooperation, and disruptive intervention. The hypothesis is that cbd (or, war without violence) is a nonmilitary way in which people can defend liberty, their way of life, humanitarian principles, and their institutions and society. The author believes that cbd meets two major peace objectives--it offers a rationale for action based on a well thought out alternative policy of deterrence and defense instead of utopian illusions and it suggests specific actions to take in international conflicts. Examples of cbd include the resistance struggles of the French and Danish against the German occupation forces during the second world war, Czechoslovak resistance to the Soviet invasion and occupation in 1968-1969, German government-sponsored noncooperation in the Ruhr to the French and Belgian occupation in 1923, and the movement by Polish workers for an independent trade union in 1980-1981. The aim of these nonviolent acts, as of all acts based on cbd, was to make the populace unrulable by the attackers and to deny the aggressors their aim of domination. The conclusion is that cbd is one creative response to the problem of war that might offer new hope for international peace if it were used as a base upon which additional creative responses could be built. At the very least, cbd would stimulate a reevaluation of the principles and institutions of the society deemed worthy of defense, encourage social improvements to make the society more just, and increase citizen participation in the operation of the society in peacetime as well as during defense struggles.
