Introduction to Nonviolence - UC Berkeley Course on YouTube Video

Michael Nagler YouTube has begun partnering with some universities to provide video of course lectures. UC Berkeley is an early adopter here, and a good example is the 27-session course Introduction to Nonviolence taught by Michael Nagler. (As an aside, I used Nagler’s book America Without Violence as one of the texts in 1984 in the first college course I ever taught, Conflict Resolution and Peaceful Progressive Change.)

Here’s the YouTube course description:

Introduction to Nonviolence - Spring 2007.
An introduction to the science of nonviolence, mainly as seen through the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi. Historical overview of nonviolence East and the West up to the American Civil Rights movement and Martin Luther King, Jr., with emphasis on the ideal of principled nonviolence and the reality of mixed or strategic nonviolence in practice, especially as applied to problems of social justice and defense.
