There is power to change the status quo, defy injustice, and fight for freedom-and it lies within the people. Nonviolent resistance combines truth, love, and the refusal to cause harm in a potent method to work against evil; beginning with Gandhi, his techniques and ideals have inspired others throughout the world. This stark book uses strong charcoal illustrations and red & black quotes to emphasize quotes from major resistance leaders. Each segment highlights a different protest or leader: Ghandi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Charles Perkins, Cesar Chavez, Mohammad Ali, Mairead Corrigan & Betty Williams, the Madres de Plaza de Mayo, Aung San Suu Kyi, the Tiananmen Square Students, Desmond Tutu, Vaclav Havel, Wangari Maathai, and The Iraq War Protest. 181 pages, hardcover, indexed, with dust jacket.
