A Promise of Peace for Ourselves, Our Families, and Our World

Book CoverBeginning 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.

Winner of the 2002 American Book Award.

“Michael Nagler is one of America’s contemporary pioneers in the field of nonviolence. For anyone seeking to strategize a peaceful future, The Search for a Nonviolent Future is a must-read. It’s wonderful material.” —Marianne Williamson
