Description

Although current events indicate otherwise, revolutions don't have to be violent.

How can you master the art of compromise to bring together even the most disparate groups? What are some ways you can make oppression backfire by playing your opponents' strongest card against them? How can you use humor to make yourself heard? 

Srdja Popovic is the author of Blueprint for Revolution and co-founder and executive director of the Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS). A native of Serbia, Popovic was one of the founders and key organizers of the Serbian nonviolent resistance group Otpor! that helped to unseat Slobodan Milosevic in October 2000. He then served a term in the Serbian National Assembly from 2000 to 2003.

New York Times editorial writer Tina Rosenberg will interview Popovic. Rosenberg's most recent book is Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World.
