The Failure of Nonviolence examines recent major social upheavals since the end of the Cold War to establish the limits of nonviolent protest, and suggest what a diverse, unruly, non-pacified movement might achieve. Focusing especially on the Arab Spring, the Colour Revolutions and the ’15M’ movement in Spain, this book discusses how movements for social change can win ground and clear the spaces necessary to plant the seeds of a new world.
