This comprehensive compilation of first-hand sources documents the history of nonviolence in the United States from colonial times to the present. Editors Staughton and Alice Lynd bring together materials from diverse sources that illuminate a movement in American History that is sometimes assumed to have begun and ended with the anti-nuclear and civil rights struggle of the ‘50s and ‘60s but which is, in fact, older than the republic itself.
Staughton Lynd is Senior Attorney of Northeast Ohio Legal Services of Youngstown, Ohio. He is author of many books, including the classic, Intellectual Origins of American Radicalism and, most recently, Living Inside Our Hope.
Alice Lynd was deeply involved with the Midwest Committee for Draft Counseling and is now Senior Attorney with Northeast Ohio Legal Services. She is coeditor with Staughton Lynd of The New Rank and File, and with Staughton Lynd and Sam Bahour of Homeland: Oral Histories of Palestine and Palestinians.
