The Future of Nonviolence
A Conversation with Julie M. Norman
New Books Network 2023
Ever since Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, non-violent resistance has held a special place in the public imagination. What can be better after all than forcing political change without the violence that so often accompanies it. But the Gandhi and King stories are so powerful they can perhaps crowd out other aspects of non-violent resistance. Many of these aspects have been explored by Julie M. Norman of University College London. Listen to her in conversation with Owen Bennett-Jones.
