Justice Without Violence
Paul Ernest Wehr, Heidi Burgess, Guy M. Burgess
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 1994 - Social Science - 301 pages
A mixture of theoretical analysis and case studies from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, this book examines non-violent direct action, political action, economic sanctions and social movements as alternative remedies in the struggle for justice. The authors thus address the basic questions that underlie current debates in international politics over the use of preventive diplomacy, humanitarian intervention and international enforcement action.
