About-

Written to provide a down-to-earth, practical guide for achieving peace in our personal lives through active nonviolence, the book features stories from the pioneers of nonviolence--Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Catholic Worker founder Dorothy Day. All are engagingly woven in with those of ordinary persons who have adopted a nonviolent perspective. The author fervently shows how everyday events, such as our conversation, our dealings with difficult (and hostile) people, even our highway driving, can be done in a nonviolent and, as a result, spiritually nourishing way.
This is a singularly distinctive "how-to" book that creatively connects the ordinary activities of our lives with the extraordinary vision of a peaceful world championed by the great advocates of nonviolence in our century.
Active Nonviolence is an original, enriching, and authentic resource for those who wish to integrate peace in both their personal and public lives.
