Another Article about Gene Sharp

February 25, 2011

And here are two other articles about Gene Sharp, from the BBC and from the Boston Globe.

A more complete list can be found on the Albert Einstein Institution web page, (scroll down to find them), and so I’ll probably stop posting links here.

Thanks so much to all who have been pointing these out to me and sending me links and newspaper articles!

Gene Sharp in the News

February 19, 2011

Ever since I started teaching Peace Studies, I have introduced the ideas of Gene Sharp, and in some classes have had students read his famous three-volume work, The Politics of Nonviolent Action, in which he puts forward his theory of nonviolence and describes 198 methods of nonviolent action, illustrated with numerous historical examples.

He has now been in the news a lot.  Here are three recent articles:

From Scientific American:  “Egypt’s revolution vindicates Gene Sharp’s theory of nonviolent activism,” by John Horgan, Feb 11, 2011.

From New York Times:  “A Tunisian-Egyptian Link That Shook Arab History,” by David D. Kirkpatrick and David E. Sanger, February 13, 2011.

Also from New York Times:  “Shy U.S. Intellectual Created Playbook Used in a Revolution,” by Sheryl Gay Stolberg, February 16, 2011.
