When international tension and war heighten threat and violence, the peace movement can mobilize many thousands for protest. But how does peace action survive when war ends, threat subsides, and most protesters fall away? This book draws on in-depth interviews with the activists who stay. Their stories reveal how commitment to a social movement is created and sustained.
