"Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict."


On Monday, March 4, 2013,  from 8-9 AM (PST) More Talk Radio hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Erica Chenoweth, co-author with Maria Stephan of "Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict."

Erica Chenoweth and Maria Stephan maintain that successful nonviolent resistance ushers in more durable and internally peaceful democracies, which are less likely to regress into civil war. They debunk the myth that violence occurs because of structural and environmental factors and that it is necessary to achieve certain political goals. Instead, they say violent insurgency is rarely justifiable on strategic grounds.
