An anthology featuring contemporary masters of the short story around the globe, including Margaret Atwood. This book is definitely worth the read and I'd recommend it to anyone, whether you have a strong background in short stories or are new to the genre. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have seen more stories from non-Western writers, though there were a few in there.

The ethical, individual approach to nonviolence predominates in this somewhat eclectic collection of readings. Much more contextual material is needed to tie this together into a cohesive package.

What is the basis for choosing a nonviolent response to conflict and violence? By presenting and analyzing some of the most significant answers that have been given to this question throughout history, this anthology of writings from both Western and nonwestern traditions proposes principled and strategic nonviolence as a realistic alternative. It includes a selection of historical sources on nonviolence―ranging from the Bhagavad-Gita to the Bible―as well as a wide range of writings by authors such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela, who have contributed to both the theory and the practice of nonviolence. Besides tracing the historical development of the concept, this volume also suggests ways of applying nonviolence to our everyday lives in the first decade of the 21st century, which the United Nations General Assembly has declared to be the Decade for Education for a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence.
