About-

Why is nonviolent civil disobedience (divine disobedience) an imperative for bringing about disarmament? What is the connection between faith, nonviolence, and resistance? How does one prepare for nonviolent acts of resistance? How does one respond to the charges brought in court? How does one view and cope with the consequences of imprisonment? How have some people nonviolently responded to U.S. intervention in Iraq and Central America and in war-torn countries like Bosnia? What are the main tenets of U.S. nuclear and foreign policy in the post-Cold War era? What is the human cost of weapons production? What does it mean to live in a national security state? What are some of the challenges faced by people in the U.S. who are concerned about justice and peace? The primary goal of this revised edition of Swords into Plowshares is to provide some initial answers to these and related questions. Contributors to this edition include: Bob Aldridge, Daniel and Philip Berrigan, Samuel H. Day Jr., Jim and Shelly Douglass, Elizabeth McAlister, Molly Rush, and a host of other activists.
