A Force More Powerful : A Century of Nonviolent Conflict by Peter Ackerman( Visual )

This two-part series tells one of the 20th century's most important and least-known stories--how nonviolent power overcame oppression and authoritarian rule.

A force more powerful : a century of nonviolent conflict( Visual )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Augusto Pinochet seized power in Chile in a 1973 military coup and banned political parties, closed newspapers, and spread fear throughout the country as disappearances, torture and imprisonment became common. In 1983, an economic crisis pushed many Chileans to oppose the dictator for the first time. Copper miners called for a nonviolent national protest day against Pinochet. Mainstream opposition parties re-ermerged after ten years and staged frequent non-violent demonstrations. They realized that the constitution Pinochet wrote in 1980 called for a plebicite--a chance for people to vote yes or no on another eight years of military rule. Pinochet had always assumed he would win but the opposition ran a bold, future-oriented "NO" campaign and in 1988 Pinochet was voted out

In Fall 1959, James Lawson offered free evening classes on nonviolent action to university students in Nashville with the goal of training and preparing them to desegregate the city's business district. Lawson had spent three years in India learning about Mohandas Gandhi. Now he guided his students in a study of both the history and practice of nonviolent methods--to prepare them for their "sit-ins" at downtown stores. Lawson's guidance helps the students endure the beatings and arrests, and lead a boycott, as they bring their stuggle for civil rights to the steps of Nashville City Hall and ultimately to the forefront of national attention
