Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Nonviolence should be seen as a wise method of indigenous struggle that preserves life even as it gains freedom, argues the author. He offers portraits of the power of nonviolent movements from around the world in order to demonstrate that the method is a powerful and often innovative method of national liberation that hasn't been "handed down" by European traditions, as some have averred. His examples come from India, South Africa, the Middle East, Burma, Nepal, Tibet, the Pacific Rim Islands, the Shoshone nation, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, and the African Diaspora.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Meek Ain't Weak is a fresh examination of the indigenous roots of mass liberatory nonviolence. From African regions to South American culture, from Asian worldviews to the wisdom of the ancients of the subcontinent, the origins of nonviolent conduct in conflict are both important and ignored.
