This is an Uprising: How Nonviolent Revolt Is Shaping the 21st C

“What’s the difference between a protest and a movement, between a tactic and a vision? How do agitators harness the spontaneity of a sudden political clash, while still maintaining discipline and control during mass mobilizations? In This Is an Uprising, Mark and Paul Engler, veteran activists and chroniclers of social movements, analyze the mechanics and tools of popular protest throughout modern history and move toward a theory of civil resistance. Drawing from multiple historical contexts and organizing traditions, from labor strikes to student marches to Gandhian nonviolence strategies, the book presents a blueprint for organizers to understand how uprisings happen, how social movements advance, and why some fail.”
