A history of peace movements in the United States, including discussions of the principles behind nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience.

From the pacifist traditions of religious groups like the Quakers and Mennonites to the radical actions of civil rights leaders like Jane Addams and Martin Luther King, Jr., peacemakers have made a tremendous impact on American society and history.  This book celebrates those people who have chosen nonviolent methods to achieve freedom and justice.
