This book presents a comparative analysis of their legacies that demonstrates how powerful peace and love can be, even in the face of hate-filled oppression, aggression, and violence. No two individuals had a greater impact on the 20th century's monumental struggles for freedom, justice, and peace. Gandhi showed the world that steadfastly and nonviolently adhering to the truth gave the world a practical alternative to the madness of war and violence. King used nonviolence to realize his dream of a beloved community and to beckon his white countrymen to live up to the lofty ideals bequeathed to them by America's founders. The two men came from widely divergent cultural, religious, economic, and political backgrounds and settings, yet they both wielded nonviolent weapons effectively.
Nonviolent civil resistance is also sometimes referred to as "nonviolent direct action" or "nonviolent conflict.

Gandhi and King
Nonviolent resistance NVR , or nonviolent action , is the practice of achieving goals such as social change through symbolic protests , civil disobedience , economic or political noncooperation, satyagraha , or other methods, while being nonviolent. This type of action highlights the desires of an individual or group that feels that something needs to change to improve the current condition of the resisting person or group. Nonviolent resistance is largely but wrongly taken as synonymous with civil disobedience. Each of these terms—nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience—has different connotations and commitments. Berel Lang argues against the conflation of nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience on the grounds that the necessary conditions for an act instancing civil disobedience are: 1 that the act violates the law, 2 that the act is performed intentionally, and 3 , that the actor anticipates and willingly accepts punitive measures made on the part of the state against him in retaliation for the act. Since acts of nonviolent political resistance need not satisfy any of these criteria, Lang argues that the two categories of action cannot be identified with one another. Its efforts are typically directed at the disputing of particular laws or group of laws while conceding the authority of the government responsible for them.
Indeed, as a young woman, Mary King lived nonviolence in the American civil rights movement of the s and s. Recent events around the world, as admirably documented here, show the continued relevance of nonviolence at the end of this most violent century in human history. A culture of peace is anything but a culture of passivity. Nonviolence is a strategy for action, not inaction, and certainly not docility. It is forthright, courageous, disciplined, assertive and, as we all too often forget, remarkably successful. It is based on big ideas and overarching ethical imperatives communicated for all to see, in everyday gestures: Gandhi walking to the sea and silently picking up a grain of sand, Rosa Parks staying seated on her Montgomery bus, Martin Luther King and thousands of others walking to work in the famous bus boycott. A culture of peace is an everyday, active commitment to free expression, to caring for our neighbors and sharing our ideals and dreams with them.
Ten years ago I was just entering my senior year in theological seminary. Like most theological students I was engaged in the exciting job of studying various theological theories. Having been raised in a rather strict fundamentalistic tradition, I was occasionally shocked as my intellectual journey carried me through new and sometimes complex doctrinal lands. But despite the shock the pilgrimage was always stimulating, and it gave me a new appreciation for objective appraisal and critical analysis. My early theological training did the same for me as the reading of [ David ] Hume did for [ Immanuel ] Kant: it knocked me out of my dogmatic slumber.
"Pilgrimage to Nonviolence"
God will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Unable to display preview.

Чего вы от меня хотите, мистер. Беккер улыбнулся: - Я ищу одну девушку. Двухцветный громко рассмеялся. - В такой одежде ты тут ничего не добьешься. Беккер нахмурился.
Глаза Сьюзан расширились. - Как прикажете это понимать. На лице Стратмора тут же появилось виноватое выражение. Он улыбнулся, стараясь ее успокоить. - С Дэвидом все в порядке.
Заслонка. Беккер повернул рычажок под топливным баком и снова нажал на стартер. Мотор кашлянул и захлебнулся.
