Unconquerable World by Jonathan Schell

Book Description

"This book mounts perhaps the most impressive argument ever made that there exists a viable and desirable alternative to the continued reliance on war." -"The New York Times"At times of global crisis, Jonathan Schell's writings have offered important alternatives to conventional thinking. Now, as conflict escalates around the world, Schell gives us an impassioned, provocative book that points the way out of the unparalleled devastation of the twentieth century toward another, more peaceful path.Tracing the expansion of violence to its culmination in nuclear stalemate, Schell uncovers a simultaneous but little-noted history of nonviolent action at every level of political life. His investigation ranges from the revolutions of America, France, and Russia, to the people's wars of China and Vietnam, to the great nonviolent events of modern times-including Gandhi's independence movement in India and the explosion of civic activity that brought about the surprising collapse of the Soviet Union.Suggesting foundations of an entirely new kind on which to construct an enduring peace, "The Unconquerable World" is a bold book of sweeping significance.

Seventh Decade by Jonathan Schell Seventh Decade, Paperback (September 2008)

Lays the fearful shape that nuclear danger has unexpectedly assumed in the 21st century. This title addresses the fundamental questions: How and why has nuclear danger revived? Where are we heading?
