Offer: Online Courses in Nonviolence
The inspiring lectures of Prof. Michael Nagler, Introduction to Nonviolence and Nonviolence Today, were recorded and transmitted via webcast in 2006/2007 at the University of California at Berkeley, within the Peace and Conflict Studies program (PACS).
If you watch his lectures online, you will see that Prof. Nagler often refers to the “readers”. Below are the readers (in .PDF format) which are excellent complementary material to the courses and to our education on nonviolence. The size of the files are somewhat large, so while you are downloading please be patient. As the nonviolent soldier of Islam, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, said: “If I could summarize nonviolence in one word, it would be: Patience.”
