The mature work of one of America's most respected peace scholars and activists, Is There No Other Way follows the legacy of nonviolence from Mahatma Gandhi to the present day. Michael Nagler unveils a hidden worldwide history of leaders and common folks who successfully responded to violence with persuasion, inclusion, and peaceful actions rather than resorting to threats, hatred, and escalating violence. Michael Nagler definitively and eloquently shows that nonviolent action is a proven and effective force against violence and injustice when it is correctly understood and applied. Finally, he explores nonviolent principles in the context of an increasingly violent American society, from school shootings to the Oklahoma City bombing. After reading this book, you will never think of nonviolence in the same way; it's a strategic, effective tactic for creating positive change.

Beginning with the achievements of Mahatma Gandhi, and following the legacy of nonviolence through the struggles against Nazism in Europe, racism in America, oppression in China and Latin America, and ethnic conflicts in Africa and Bosnia, Michael Nagler unveils a hidden history. Nonviolence, he proposes, has proven its power against arms and social injustice wherever it has been correctly understood and applied. Nagler's approach is not only historical but also spiritual, drawing on the experience of Gandhi and other activists and teachers. Individual chapters include A Way Out of Hell, The Sweet Sound of Order, and A Clear Picture of Peace. The last chapter includes a five-point blueprint for change and "study circle" guide. The foreword by Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, is new to this edition.

“Nonviolence is not the recourse of the weak but actually calls for an uncommon kind of strength; it is not a refraining from something but the engaging of a positive force,” renowned peace activist Michael Nagler writes. Here he offers a step-by-step guide to creatively using nonviolence to confront any problem and to build change movements capable of restructuring the very bedrock of society. Nagler identifies some specific tactical mistakes made by unsuccessful nonviolent actions such as the Tiananmen Square demonstrations and the Occupy protests and includes stories of successful nonviolent resistance from around the world, including an example from Nazi Germany. And he shows that nonviolence is more than a tactic—it is a way of living that will enrich every area of our lives.

Michael Nagler argues that problems now faced by American society spring from a false way of looking at the world,based on the premise that material things are fundamental, consciousness merely derivative. He advocates a return to the ancient and Eastern spritual view that consciousness is fundamental. In developing a new conception of the universe and applying it to our social problems, Dr. Nagler explains how we can best oppose war, consumerism, commercialism, scientism, and the spiritual hollowness of modern life. Commentary by Lewis S. Mudge.

Sie war nicht nur die prominenteste politische Journalistin ihrer Zeit und Begründerin der Friedensgesellschaft, sie kämpfte Zeit ihres Lebens leidenschaftlich gegen überholte Konventionen, gegen die Unterdrückung der Frauen und gegen den Antisemitismus. Ihr Bestseller "Die Waffen nieder" (1889) verschaffte ihr Weltruhm, und ihrer Initiative verdanken wir die Stiftung des Friedensnobelpreises, den sie 1905 als erste weibliche Preisträgerin verliehen bekam. Brigitte Hamann fügt in dieser bebilderten Biografie ein facettenreiches Bild Bertha von Suttners zusammen: ihre Jugend in Prag und Wien, die Spielleidenschaft der Mutter, ihre romantische Liebe zu ihrem deutlich jüngeren Mann Arthur, die abenteuerliche gemeinsame Flucht in den Kaukasus, die Jahre der Entbehrung und ihre Emanzipation zu einer anerkannten Journalistin und Schriftstellerin, schließlich ihr Engagement für die internationale Friedensbewegung. Vor dem Hintergrund der politischen und sozialgeschichtlichen Ereignisse entsteht so ein lebendiges, differenziertes Panorama der untergehenden Donaumonarchie am Vorabend des Ersten Weltkriegs.

Why do many U.S. residents, Catholics and Catholic leaders among them, too often fall short of adequately challenging the use of violence in U.S. policy? The opportunities and developments in approaches to peacemaking have been growing at a significant rate. However, violent methods continue to hold significant sway in U.S. policy and society as the commonly assumed way to "peace." Even when community organizers, policymakers, members of Catholic leadership, and academics sincerely search for alternatives to violence, they too often think about nonviolence as primarily a rule or a strategy. Catholic Social Teaching has been moving toward transcending the limits of these approaches, but it still has significant room for growth. In order to contribute to this growth and to impact U.S. policy, McCarthy draws on Jesus, Gandhi, Ghaffar Khan, and King to offer a virtue-based approach to nonviolent peacemaking with a corresponding set of core practices. This approach is also set in conversation with aspects of human rights discourse to increase its possible impact on U.S. policy. As a whole, Becoming Nonviolent Peacemakers offers an important challenge to contemporary accounts of peacemaking in the U.S.

Mahatma Gandhis Autobiographie wurde von Gandhi in den zwanziger Jahren in Form wöchentlicher Beiträge zu seiner Gujarati-Zeitschrift "Navajivan" niedergeschrieben, dann von seinem Sekretär Mahadev Desai ins Englische übersetzt und nach Durchsicht und Billigung Gandhis in Buchform veröffentlicht. Sie ist ein einzigartiges Dokument seiner Wahrheitssuche und der Nachwelt gegenüber ein lebendiger Protest gegen die Verflüchtigung des Mahatma-Bildes zur Legende, denn sie schildert mit einer Offenheit, die gleich weit entfernt ist von eitler Selbststilisierung wie von koketter Selbstentlarvung, die Entwicklung dieser ebenso bedeutenden wie eigenartigen Persönlichkeit, bei der der Mensch deshalb nicht vom Politiker zu trennen ist, weil beide gleichermassen im religiösen Grunde wurzeln. Zeitlich bis an die Schwelle von Gandhis Wirksamkeit als Befreier Indiens im grossen Stil führend, legt sie alle jenen Elemente seines Geistes und Charakters, die ihn zu seiner welthistorischen Rolle befähigten, mit einer Rückhaltlosigkeit dar, die sein Denken und Handeln von den Fundamenten her verstehen lehrt. Der Leser nimmt teil an Gandhis Jugenderlebnissen, seiner Begegnung mit der englischen Welt, seinen ihn ins politische Leben hineinziehenden Erfahrungen in Südafrika und seinem Hineinwachsen in das Freiheitsstreben Indiens, dem er dann die moralische Basis und die geistige Richtung geben sollte.

First published in 1993, Dennis Dalton's iconoclastic account of Gandhi's political and intellectual development gained prominence for its balance and extensive research, as well as its portrayal of Gandhi as a deeply human and complex force. Focusing on the leader's two signal triumphs: the civil disobedience movement (or salt satyagraha) of 1930 and the Calcutta fast of 1947, Dalton makes clear that Gandhi's lifelong career in national politics gave him the opportunity to develop and refine his ideals. He controversially concludes with a comparison of Gandhi's methods and the strategies of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, proposing a fascinating juxtaposition that not only enriches the biography of all three figures but also proves Gandhi's relevance to the study of race and political leadership in America. A new afterword situates Gandhi within the "clash of civilizations" debate, identifying the implications for continuing nonviolent protests. Dalton also conducts an extensive overview of Gandhian studies and includes a detailed chronology of events in Gandhi's life and leadership.

Annotation Social postmodernism and systematic theology can be considered the new pair in some of the most creative discussions on the future of theological method on a global scale. Both in the academy and in the public square, as well as in the manifold local and pastoral moments of ministry and community social activism, the social, the postmodern, and the theological intermingle in engaging and border-crossing ways. The Community of the Weak presents a new kind of fundamental theology with a postmodern touch, using jazz as a metaphor, writing ethnographically out of the personal windows of lived experiences, combining fragments of autobiography with theological reconstruction. A comparative perspective on North American and European developments in contemporary systematic theology serves as a hermeneutical horizon to juxtapose two continents in their very different contexts. The author proposes a systematic and fundamental theology that is more jazzy, global, and narrative, deeply embedded in pastoral ministry to tell its postmodern story. Book jacket.

Die Geschichte der Menschheit – eine ewige Abfolge von Krieg, Genozid, Mord, Folter und Vergewaltigung. Und es wird immer schlimmer. Aber ist das richtig? In einem wahren Opus Magnum, einer groß angelegten Gesamtgeschichte unserer Zivilisation, untersucht der weltbekannte Evolutionspsychologe Steven Pinker die Entwicklung der Gewalt von der Urzeit bis heute und in allen ihren individuellen und kollektiven Formen, vom Verprügeln der Ehefrau bis zum geplanten Völkermord. Unter Rückgriff auf eine Fülle von wissenschaftlichen Belegen aus den unterschiedlichsten Disziplinen beweist er zunächst, dass die Gewalt im Laufe der Geschichte stetig abgenommen hat und wir heute in der friedlichsten Epoche der Menschheit leben. Diese verblüffende Tatsache verlangt nach einer Erklärung: Pinker schält in seiner Analyse sechs Entwicklungen heraus, die diesen Trend begünstigt haben, untersucht die Psychologie der Gewalt auf fünf innere Dämonen, die Gewaltausübung begünstigen, benennt vier Eigenschaften des Menschen, die den inneren Dämonen entgegenarbeiten und isoliert schließlich fünf historische Kräfte, die uns heute in der friedlichsten Zeit seit jeher leben lassen. Pinkers Darstellung revolutioniert den Blick auf die Welt und uns Menschen. Und sie macht Hoffnung und Mut. »Pinkers Studie ist eine leidenschaftliche Antithese zum verbreiteten Kulturpessimismus und dem Gefühl des moralischen Untergangs der Moderne.« Der Spiegel »Steven Pinker ist ein Top-Autor und verdient all die Superlative, mit denen man ihn überhäuft« New York Times» Die Argumente von Steven Pinker haben Gewicht [...]. Die Chance, heute Opfer von Gewalt zu werden, ist viel geringer als zu jeder anderen Zeit. Das ist eine spannende Nachricht, die konträr zur öffentlichen Wahrnehmung ist."

In an exciting blend of action, adventure, and fantasy author Rivera Sun boldly takes the reader in a new direction . . . that of waging peace, active nonviolence, and nonviolent struggle. Challenging war cultures and military societies, The Way Between brings the skills of resolving conflict, anti-bullying, and ending violence into a coming of age story for a new generation of readers. Between flight and fight lies a mysterious third path called The Way Between, and young shepherdess and orphan Ari Ara must master it . . . before war destroys everything she loves! She begins training as the apprentice of the great warrior Shulen, and enters a world of warriors and secrets, swords and magic, friendship and mystery. She uncovers forbidden prophecies, searches for the lost heir to two thrones, and chases the elusive forest-dwelling Fanten to unravel their hidden knowledge. Full of twists and turns and surprises, The Way Between is bound to carve out a niche on bookshelves everywhere! "This novel should be read aloud to everyone, by everyone, from childhood onward. Rivera Sun writes in a style as magical as Tolkien and as authentic as Twain." - Tom Hastings, Director of PeaceVoice, Professor of Conflict Studies at Portland State University "The Way Between is a compelling and wise articulation of the human sojourn . . . a dispatch from a mythic dimension of archaic longing and potential that calls us to our truest selves." - Ken Butigan, Pace e Bene/Campaign Nonviolence "A beautiful story that expands the imagination into the possibilities of peace and active nonviolence . . . this book will prepare our children and ourselves for the real-life world we so desperately need." - David Hartsough, Founder Nonviolent Peaceforce, author of Waging Peace "Nonviolence is a treasure hidden right under our noses that can help solve--not just some-- all of the challenges the world is facing. Imagine the sheer wonder of making this great discovery. Rivera Sun skillfully shows us The Way." -Stephanie N. Van Hook, Director of the Metta Center for Nonviolence; author of Gandhi Searches for Truth: A Practical Biography for Children. "Rivera Sun has, once again, used her passion for nonviolence, and her talent for putting thoughts into powerful words on a page, to recreate life, to show us the possibilities that can be, if we dedicate ourselves to The Way Between". -Robin Wildman, Fifth Grade Teacher, Nonviolent Schools Movement, and Nonviolence Trainer "Generations of young adults will be helped to find this way in the adventures of Ari Ara; and we will all be so greatly in Rivera's debt." - Michael Nagler, author of Search for a Nonviolent Future; founder of Metta Center for Nonviolence "A wonderful book! It is so rare to find exciting fiction for young people and adults that shows creative solutions to conflict and challenges violence with active nonviolence and peace. Ari Ara is a delightful character and this story is a gem." - Heart Phoenix, River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding
