Glued binding. 282 p. Audience: General/trade. Within Westernized societies, particularly the United States, there has been a near universal acceptance that nonviolent action has been the foundation on which the progress and/or success of political and social justice movements has been built. Contrary to popular beliefs held by many in the United States, political violence has played a crucial role in advancing historical justice struggles. In this breakthrough study, Rosebraugh examines the historical roles that both nonviolence and political violence have played in social and political movements both in the United States and internationally. His profound and well-researched conclusions advocate the necessity of a political and social revolution in the United States, using any means necessary. Craig Rosebraugh is a co-founder of Arissa, an effort to build a revolutionary movement in the United States of America. A political activist since 1990, he is best known for his former role as a spokesperson for the Earth Liberation Front.


More Description


Within Westernized societies, particularly the United States, there has been a near-universal acceptance that nonviolent action has been the foundation on which the progress and/or success of political and social justice movements have been built. Yet, contrary to popular belief, political violence has played a crucial role in advancing historic justice struggles. This breakthrough study examines the historic roles that both nonviolence and political violence have played in international social and political movements. The profound and well-researched conclusions presented advocate the necessity of political and social revolution in the United Statesusing any means necessary. This is an excellent resource for those contemplating political and social change and for anyone involved in political and social movements, especially those wondering why single-issue pursuits rarely, if ever, are successful. Challenging the predominant societal norms on the political and social change process in the United States, this is an important contribution to the struggle that may very well become the new American revolution."
