From protests over climate change and immigrant rights to movements like Occupy, the Arab Spring, and #BlackLivesMatter, a new generation is deploying nonviolent action to shape public debate and force political change. Though media tend to portray such movements as spontaneous and unpredictable, here policy analyst Mark Engler and activist organizer Paul Engler explore the hidden dynamics behind such uprisings. With insights from contemporary activists and revelations about leaders like Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Gene Sharp, and Frances Fox Piven, the Englers examine the core principles that have been used to spark and guide moments of nonviolent yet transformative unrest.
