A valuable source of information for anyone with interest in the field of peace and nonviolence. -- New Routes
A magisterial collection of essays that significantly enhances our understanding of the phenomenon and pervasiveness of non-violent action as well as its transformative powers...This encyclopedia will be the standard reference on non-violent struggles for a long time to come. -- Yuen Foong Khong, Fellow, Nuffield College, Oxford University.
At a time when so many violent revolutions have disintegrated into social disasters, it is high time that nonviolent action-for human rights, democracy and sustainable development-moved to center stage. This encyclopedia should help to establish the legitimacy of nonviolent action in the building of a civil society worthy of the name. -- Malvern Lumsden, Senior Research Fellow, International Peace Research Institute, and Co-editor of the Journal of Peace Research
A huge and remarkably comprehensive work on the concepts, strategies, movements, and personalities in the long and too-easily-overlooked history of nonviolent action for social change. The diversity of writers and references helps to assure that this volume is free of sectarian dogma and control...loaded with capsule biographies of movement leaders and with historical cameos from all over the world. Of particular value are the cases from numerous non-Western countries...Israel/Palestine, South Africa, Namibia, Panama, and others. Scholars, activists, and policy makers would all do well to spend many hours exploring this big book, pondering its lessons, and treasuring its availability for future reference. -- Alan Geyer Professor Emeritus, Wesley Theological Seminary
This encyclopedia superbly fills the gaping hole in our understanding of the utility of nonviolent direct action for achieving social justice...Knowledge of nonviolent direct action will be vitally important in the post-modern age, and this encyclopedia provides the essential foundation for understanding and further study and research. Of interest to scholars, policymakers, and activists alike, these essays taken together will enable us to walk with wisdom and a minimum of violence into the 21st century. The editors have wisely included references to ethnic and religious conflicts in every corner of the world. If taken seriously, the contributions in the Encyclopedia open the door to a new age of peacemaking, justice-seeking, and democratic governance, both locally and internationally. -- Robert C. Johansen, Director of graduate studies, The Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Notre Dame University
Provides authoritative information for those who want to understand the lives of change agents, the techniques, the organizations, the philisophical basis, and the history of nonviolent protest. It will increase the power of reference librarians who ought not to be passive about recommending its use. -- Rettig on Reference
This appears to be the first encyclopedia devoted to the subject. This is a unique, well-written, informative encyclopedia that should be a part of any academic or large public library collection. -- Booklist
Teachers and advanced students will appreciate the usefulness of this reference work and recognize its significance in a contemporary world of ubiquitous violence. -- VOYA
This encyclopedia will be a standard reference on nonviolent action for years to come. The work has both great scope, and a high quality of writing, editing, and production. Protest, Power, and Change marks an important milestone in the development of history written from the perspective of peace. It is safe to say that the volume contains much important material that is not easily found elsewhere, and is not an exaggeration to claim that this is one encyclopedia that is more interesting and action-packed than many a well-written biography or novel. I can thin of no single work that will be more useful for those who want to understand the scope and history of nonviolent action for social change. -- Fellowship
The fact that an encyclopedia of nonviolence has been published is cause enough for celebration. The faxt that it's comprehensive and authoritative-a book that one can spend hours reading with great delight-is further reason to be enthusiastic about its appearance. Readers of Peacework would perform a great service to the movement by seeing that is is available in school, college, and public libraries. -- Peacework
It is a surprise to lean that no prior encyclopedia has been published in the field of peace and nonviolence studies. Highly recommended for general and academic collections. -- Choice
