About A Force More Powerful

In order to broaden understanding of nonviolent conflict resolution, I suggest you watch [or read about] "A Force More Powerful," the 2000 PBS documentary series which "....explores one of the 20th century's most important but least-understood stories - how nonviolent power overcame oppression and authoritarian rule all over the world."  [http://www.aforcemorepowerful.org/films/index.php, retrieved 26 January 2007]

Force More Powerful:  Nashville:  We Were Warriors

Force More Powerful:  India:  Defying the Crown

Force More Powerful:  South Africa:  Freedom in Our Lifetime

Force More Powerful:  Denmark:  Living with the Enemy

Force More Powerful:  Poland:  We've Caught God by the Arm

Force More Powerful:  Chile:  Defeat of a Dictator

I often use this series in the restorative justice course, too.....
