Cesar Chavez and the Common Sense of Nonviolence

by

Cesar Chavez and the Common Sense of Nonviolence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cesar Chavez has long been heralded for his personal practice of nonviolent resistance in struggles against social, racial, and labor injustices. However, the works of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. have long overshadowed Chavez's contributions to the theory of nonviolence. José-Antonio Orosco seeks to elevate Chavez as an original thinker, providing an analysis of what Chavez called "the common sense of nonviolence." By engaging Chavez in dialogue with a variety of political theorists and philosophers, Orosco demonstrates how Chavez developed distinct ideas about nonviolent theory that are timely for dealing with today's social and political issues, including racism, sexism, immigration, globalization, and political violence.

Synopsis:

Long overshadowed by Martin Luther King and Gandhi, Cesar Chavez conducted his protests following a strong belief in nonviolent action to achieve the goal of equal opportunity for all.

About the Author

José-Antonio Orosco is associate professor of philosophy at Oregon State University.
