From Dictatorship to Democracy was a small pamphlet, printed and distributed by Dr Gene Sharp and is based on his study, over a period of forty years, on non-violent methods of demonstration. Now in its fourth edition, it was originally handed out by the Albert Einstein Peace Institution, and although never actively promoted, to date it has been translated into thirty-one languages. Now in its twenty-first year, it is being published for the first time in the English language. This astonishing book travelled as a photocopied pamphlet from Burma to Indonesia, Serbia and most recently Egypt, Tunisia and Syria, with dissent in China also reported. Surreptitiously handed out amongst youth uprisings the world over - how the 'how-to' guide came about and its role in the recent Arab uprisings is an extraordinary tale.Once read you'll find yourself urging others to read it and indeed want to gift it. It has been likened to Karl Marx's, Manifesto and Mao Tse Tung's, The Little Red Book in its historic importance and has played a pivotal role in the recent and ongoing uprisings of the Arab Spring.
