"Of course, let us have peace, we cry, 'but at the same time let us have normalcy, let us lose nothing, let our lives stand intact, let us know neither prison nor ill repute nor disruption of ties . . . ' There is no peace because there are no peacemakers. There are no makers of peace because the making of peace is at least as costly as the making of war-at least as exigent, at least as disruptive, at least as liable to bring disgrace and prison and death in its wake" Daniel Berrigan, No Bars to Manhood More than sixty-five peacemakers have contributed oral narratives to this compelling history of those who say no to war making in the strongest way possible: by engaging in civil disobedience and paying the consequences in jail or prison. Crossing the Line gives voice to often neglected social history and provides provocative stories of actions, trials, and imprisonment. This fascinating volume serves as an excellent supplement to conventional histories. Almost all the storytellers here are people of faith or are inspired by those who live by faith. Many work at conventional careers; some do full-time peacemaking by living in Catholic Worker houses or in the Jonah House community; several are priests and nuns who minister worldwide. Also featured are three resisters prominent in War Resisters League history. From World War II conscientious objectors to contemporary activists, these narrators have refused to be helpless in the face of a violent world, and have said with their bodies that they do not accept the status quo of permanent war and war preparation. In short, the voices illustrate hope at a time when it seems in short supply.

About the Author:

Rosalie Riegle is an oral historian who taught English at Saginaw Valley State University from 1969 to 2003. The author of two books on the Catholic Worker movement, Voices from the Catholic Worker and Dorothy Day: Portraits by Those Who Knew Her, Riegle raised four daughters and cofounded two Catholic Worker houses in Saginaw, Michigan.

Review:

For anyone who thinks the antiwar movement ended with the Vietnam War, this collection of lively and provocative interviews with pacifist direct actionists proves otherwise, highlighting the important relationship between nonviolent civil disobedience and the work of peace and justice from the 1970s and '80s through today. It's a welcome addition to any activist's or social movement scholar's bookshelf.
--Marian Mollin, author of Radical Pacifism in Modern America: Egalitarianism and Protest

In her book, ''Crossing the Line: Nonviolent Resisters Speak Out for Peace'' (Cascade Books, 2013) Rosalie Riegle chronicles the action-to-court-to-jail-and-prison journeys of some of the last century's most committed pacifists...Perhaps Riegle's well-done compilation of 65 oral histories will prompt more people to step into the fray.
--Patrick O Neil, from his February 2014 review in Sojourners --Wipf and Stock Publishers
