Nonviolent Struggle: Theories, Strategies, and Dynamics

Author: Sharon Erickson Nepstad

Oxford University Press, New York, 2015, pp. 264

Designed as a textbook, it covers history, theoretical developments and debates about the results of nonviolent movements. It categorizes nine types of nonviolent action, which are illustrated by case studies.  A separate chapter explores key issues of why and when sections of the armed services defect from a regime challenged by a nonviolent movement.
