such a lot americans can recite the names of well-known generals and ancient battles. a few may also identify champions of nonviolence like Martin Luther King Jr., or bear in mind the struggles for peace and justice that run like a thread via U.S. historical past. yet little consciousness is paid to the highbrow culture of nonviolence. Ira Chernus surveys the evolution of this strong suggestion from the Colonial period as much as at the present time, concentrating on consultant hobbies (Anabaptists, Quakers, Anarchists, Progressives) and key members (Thoreau, Reinhold Niebuhr, Dorothy Day, A.J. Muste, King, Barbara Deming), together with non-Americans like Mohandas Gandhi or Thich Nhat Hanh, who've helped shape the assumption of nonviolence within the usa. American Nonviolence bargains a necessary consultant for either scholars and activists.
