From Dictatorship to Democracy was a pamphlet, printed and distributed by Dr Gene Sharp and based on his study, over a period of forty years, on non-violent methods of demonstration. Now in its fourth edition, it was originally handed out by the Albert Einstein Institution, and although never actively promoted, to date it has been translated into thirty-one languages. This astonishing book travelled as a photocopied pamphlet from Burma to Indonesia, Serbia and most recently Egypt, Tunisia and Syria, with dissent in China also reported. Surreptitiously handed out amongst youth uprisings the world over - how the 'how-to' guide came about and its role in the recent Arab uprisings is an extraordinary tale. Once read you'll find yourself urging others to read it and indeed want to gift it.

About the Author:

Gene Sharp holds degrees from universities across the world. He is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. He was previously at Harvard University's Center for International Affairs. For his lifelong commitment to the defence of freedom, democracy, and the reduction of political violence he was awarded the Courage of Conscience award in 2008. He is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

Review:

A book that must be read. It is scholarly, readable and highly relevant at a time when so many people are challenging the dictatorships under which they live. With his long historical understanding he offers really useful advice to people who are engaged on the same task today -- Tony Benn Sharp's contribution to the struggle for non-violence protest in the Arab world has been immense. After many years of persistent effort he has been fully vindicated. -- Raja Shehadeh
