The life of Gene Sharp

New Statesman:

As Sharp sees it, the methods that he documents can be used by goodies and baddies in - terchangeably. He doesn’t see this as a problem. “In the US, during the civil rights struggle, both sides used these techniques. In the bus boycott, when black people organised car-sharing in protest against segregation, their opponents refused to sell them gasoline and cancelled insurance policies on their cars. I don’t think that was a wonderful thing to do, but it’s certainly better than lynching.”

Interesting review. I had no idea that From Dictatorship to Democracy was written for the Burmese and first put on sale in Bangkok book store. That says something, though I don't know what it is
