History of Nonviolence – Counterpower

We mention a few sources of case studies for nonviolent action and lo and behold we’re told about another.

Tim Gee, author and activist (and reader of our blog – thanks Tim) has written Counterpower: Making Change Happen, in which he covers case studies of successful movements from India’s Independence Movement to the Arab Spring.
