George Lakey discusses his new book from Melville House, How We Win: A Guide to Nonviolent Direct Action Campaigning: Nov 14, Wed 7pm, Verso books in Dumbo.  Verso Books, 20 Jay St, Suite 1010

George, a member of Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting, was first arrested in a civil rights sit-in, and has for half a century given leadership to prophetic projects: A Quaker Action Group, Movement for a New Society, Men Against Patriarchy, Jobs with Peace, and Earth Quaker Action Team (EQAT).  He recently retired from Swarthmore College, where he worked with students to build the online Global Nonviolent Action Database of over a thousand nonviolent campaigns in nearly 200 countries.  This, his tenth book, harvests a life of learning how to, as Martin Buber put it, “drive the plowshare of normative principle into the hard soil of political reality.”
