If societies have only memories of war, of cruelty, of violence, then why are we called humankind? This book marks a new trajectory in Memory Studies by examining cultural memories of nonviolent struggles from ten countries. The book reminds us of the enduring cultural scripts for human agency, solidarity, resilience and human kindness.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The most valuable contribution of this book is to remind us of the political significance of remembering and archiving. ... There are other resources available that give more depth and breadth about past movements, but for activists concerned with strategic campaign planning and movement-building this book makes the case for understanding the importance of cultural memory. This is especially important if we are to learn from nonviolent successes and make relevant archival material available and visible in society." (Rachel Julian, Peace News, Vol. 2590-2591, February-March, 2016)
