Hi everyone, I've just submitted for validation The Power of Nonviolence: Writings by Advocates of Peace by Howard Zinn.The usual pre-validation has been done. There are a lot of proper names andI've double-checked most of them. [Back Cover]The Power of Nonviolence, the first anthology of alternatives to war with a historical perspective - with an introduction by Howard Zinn about September 11 and the U.S. response to the terrorist attacks -presents the most salient and persuasive arguments for peace in the last 2,500 years of human history.Arranged chronologically, covering the major conflagrations in the world, The Power of Nonviolence is a compelling step forward in the study of pacifism, a timely anthology that fills a void for people looking for responses to crises that are not based on guns or bombs.Included are some of the most original thinkers and writings about peace andnonviolence-Buddha, Scott Nearing, Henry David Thoreau's "CivilDisobedience," Jane Addams, William Penn on the end of war, Dorothy Day's"Pacifism," Erich Fromm, and Rajendra Prasad. Supplementing these classic voices are more recent advocations for peace: Albert Camus's "Neither Victims nor Executioners," A. J. Muste's impressive "Getting Rid of War," Martin Luther King's influential "Declaration of Independence from the War in Vietnam," and Arundhati Roy's "War Is Peace," plus many others. Enjoy!
