Sharp's Dictionary of Power and Struggle is the first dictionary to explain in unambiguous, accessible language the terminology of civilian struggle. In 994 entries, the Dictionary defines those ideologies, political systems, strategies, concepts and more that form the core of nonviolent action as it has occurred throughout history and across the globe, providing much-needed clarification of language that is often mired in confusion. Entries discuss everything from militarization to censorship, guerrilla theater, pacifism, different types of protest, and the effects of protest songs. Written by renowned scholar Gene Sharp, the Dictionary includes, in addition to the A-Z entries, a foreword by Sir Adam Roberts, President of the British Academy; an introduction by the author; a descriptive list of recent cases of nonviolent struggle; an essay on power; and a guide for further reading. The Dictionary is an ideal resource for those wishing to better understand the concepts behind civilian struggle, such as activists, educators, journalists, lawyers, researchers, and anyone with an interest in or curiosity about world events.
