Political power is derived from the people of a place and will disintegrate when people withdraw their obedience and support.
His From Dictatorship to Democracy is a handbook of ‘weapons’ to topple dictators. Banned in many countries, it has influenced a generation of revolutionary leaders in Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and now America.

The Story behind Modern Revolution

Gene Sharp - Lecture

(circa 1997) - Professor Gene Sharp, as Senior Scholar of the Albert Einstein Institution, shares insights from his life's work of studying of how non-violent struggle can work. For many years Gene and the Albert Einstein Institution have been mentors and catalysts for non-violent struggle throughout the world.

In this early lecture Professor Sharp, now a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, gives example after compelling example of what it takes to nurture successful non-violent struggle. Military people trained in violence as the only way and people fighting against military violence can change their minds, hearts and ways as they learn how nonviolent struggle can work. Thoughtful strategy, discipline to carry it out, a willingness to learn and understand what people of a place want and will support are essential aspects of nonviolent struggle.
