Nonviolence Classic

Thank you for the excellent articles about Egypt's use of nonviolence in its successful liberation from the Mubarak regime ("The Surprising Power of Nonviolence," May 2011). If they are not already aware of it, readers may be interested in the seminal book The Power of Nonviolence, by Richard Gregg. Written in 1934, after Gregg spent four years with Gandhi during the foundational years of the campaign for Indian independence, the book is as relevant today as was to Martin Luther King, Jr., who wrote the foreword to a revised version in 1959.
