the news In This is an Uprising, Mark and Paul Engler brilliantly unearth, explain, and contextualize the dynamics of breakout mobilizations both dispelling the popular notion that transformational progress simply arises from historical circumstance, and pushing back on long held dogma that hinders successful engineering of people driven campaigns For all those who seek to play an effective role in creating social or political change in the modern era, the Englers book is a must read James Rucker, cofounder of ColorOfChange.org and Citizen Engagement LabThere is a craft to uprisingand this craft can change the worldFrom protests around climate change and immigrant rights, to Occupy, the Arab Spring, and BlackLivesMatter, a new generation is unleashing strategic nonviolent action to shape public debate and force political change When mass movements erupt onto our television screens, the media consistently portrays them as being spontaneous and unpredictable Yet, in this book, Mark and Paul Engler look at the hidden art behind such outbursts of protest, examining core principles that have been used to spark and guide moments of transformative unrest.With incisive insights from contemporary activists, as well as fresh revelations about the work of groundbreaking figures such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Gene Sharp, and Frances Fox Piven, the Englers show how people with few resources and little conventional influence are engineering the upheavals that are reshaping contemporary politics.Nonviolence is usually seen simply as a philosophy or moral code This Is an Uprising shows how it can instead be deployed as a method of political conflict, disruption, and escalation It argues that if we are always taken by surprise by dramatic outbreaks of revolt, we pass up the chance to truly understand how social transformation happens.
