He is the author of more than a dozen books that have been translated into over 60 languages. His works include Gandhi as a Political Strategist, Waging Nonviolent Struggle: 20th Century Practice and 21st Century Potential and Nonviolent Action: A Research Guide. Sharp's writings have had a direct effect on nonviolent resistance tactics around the globe, from Iran to Venezuela to Russia.


Mr. Sharp has had broad influence on international events over the past two decades, helping to advance a global democratic awakening. -- Wall Street Journal Gene Sharp is perhaps the most influential proponent of nonviolent action alive. His work has served as a how-to manual for activists in a swath of countries across Eastern Europe and Asia. -- The Progressive Long considered the foremost authority in his field, Sharp has inspired generations of progressive peace, labor, feminist, environmental, and social justice activists in the United States and around the world. -- Stephen Zunes, Huffington Post Gene Sharp, a retired Harvard researcher, is considered the godfather of nonviolent resistance. Since the early 1970s, his work has served as the template for taking on authoritarian regimes from Burma to Belgrade. -- The Christian Science Monitor "This unique and highly specialized dictionary by Sharp covers almost any term or concept that is related to civil resistance, particularly nonviolent resistance...This volume succeeds in establishing definitions for the changing language of civil resistance and will contribute to the creation of a comprehensive vocabulary for discussions of this topic."--CHOICE
