This new Atlas provides an overview of the evolution of sustained, civilian-based, non-military campaigns to win or defend human rights, democracy and justice, worldwide.

The series of sixty maps examine and portray the effective use of civilian-based nonviolent power, and its applications around the globe throughout the past hundred years, reaching into today’s internal social and political conflicts.

Beginning with Tsarist Russia and the Duma in 1905, the book covers such civil resistance movements as:

  • Danes and Bulgarians in the Second World War
  • Civil Rights Movement, United States, 1945–70
  • Spain, opposition to autocratic rule, 1958–75
  • Argentina, Mothers of the Plaza de Maya, 1977 to today
  • the Soviet Jewry movement, 1967–1989
  • South Africa, resisting Apartheid, 1983–94
  • Northern Ireland, the peace movement to 1998
  • Serbia, overthrow of Milosevic, 2000.

The book covers topics right up to the present day, with maps showing Tibet, Belarus, Burma, West Papua and Zimbabwe.

Any student of world history, conflict studies or security studies will find it to be a fascinating, useful and original resource.
