""As a study of the nature and sources of personal heroism in pursuit of moral vision, this book is remarkable."" --Ramsey Clark ""Molly Rush is one of the pioneers and heroes of our modern age."" --Helen Caldicott, founding president of Physicians for Social Responsibility; founder of Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament ""We are not exactly the world we were when Molly struck her blow for peace. One reason we are not is that Molly Rush defied popular wisdom. 'If it would do any good, ' people said, 'we'd do it too.' Molly did it without a warranty. She had no assurance it would do good, but she did it all the same. Her story is truly, beautifully, soundly, responsibly, and reliably told by Liane Norman."" --Mark Harris, author of The Southpaw and Bang the Drum Slowly ""Praising Molly Rush seems to me a redundant exercise; somewhat like praising the Grand Canyon or a Mojave sunset. She is, like them, a natural wonder. Spouse and parent, conscious and joyous spirit, friend and arduous worker, she seems to me above all a teacher of what the human might be. She lives her ideals."" --Father Daniel Berrigan, poet and member of the Plowshares Eight ""Molly Rush's story is a testament to the extraordinary strengths of 'ordinary' people. With warm sympathy and lyric grace, Liane Norman illumines Molly's discovery of strength and freedom, and with it the possibility of finding our own."" --Mark Sommer, author of Beyond the Bomb and The Conquest of War ""Liane Norman brilliantly tells the story of Molly Rush, a true hero of our time, resisting nonviolently the onslaught of nuclearism, accepting prison as an expression of love for her children and her country. Norman's faithful narrative ensures a deeply moving and edifying experience for any serious reader."" --Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law, Princeton University; author (with Robert Jay Lifton) of Indefensible Weapons

Review:

"Liane Norman brilliantly tells the story of Molly Rush, a true hero of our time, resisting nonviolently the onslaught of nuclearism, accepting prison as an expression of love for her children and her country. Norman's faithful narrative ensures a deeply moving and edifying experience for any serious reader." -- Richard Falk, Professor of International Law, Princeton University

"With a fine sense of history, Liane Norman weaves Molly's acts, the family anguish and ordinary daily humdrum happenings into the fabric of the long human struggle for moral life. The effect is startling. From the solemn, compelling history of William Penn, Norman finds a natural harmony of spirit and purpose in the story of Molly Rush in modern-day America. Each confronted the major demons of their moment. With Penn, it was state prohibition of the free exercise of religious faith. With Rush, it was the state pursuit of nuclear holocaust. Each defied authority and stood trial for acts of conscience." -- Ramsey Clark

From Library Journal:

This is a well-written popular account of an act of civil disobedience committed in Pennsylvania in 1980, in which nuclear warhead casings at a General Electric plant were damaged by a group calling themselves the Ploughshares Eight. The action touched off a wave of similar antinuclear protests during the 1980s and had important legal repercussions in the realm of civil disobedience. This book focuses on one of the participants, a housewife named Molly Rush, and discusses her involvement with the group and its impact on her family and friends. This serves as a fascinating complement to more technical and legal works such as Francis Anthony Boyle's Defending Civil Resistance Under International Law (Transnational Pub., 1987.)-- Jennifer Scarlott, World Policy Inst., New York
