Nonviolent Revolutions

Civil Resistance in the Late 20th Century

Sharon Erickson Nepstad

Oxford Studies in Culture and Politics

  • Unlike other studies of revolutions focused exclusively on armed struggles, this book examines revolutionary movements that are fought through nonviolent means.
  • The book takes a comparative approach, examining cases that achieved their goals as well as those that failed, thus offering unique insights into the factors that can shape outcomes or derail civil resistance campaigns.
