>Gene Sharp

With the nonviolent overthrow of the Mubarak government in Egypt, Gene Sharp (biographical prophile) has been receiving increased attention. We watched some of his early film work in Nonviolence and Christian Faith last year, and I’ve used his book Waging Nonviolent Struggle for a few projects. I’ve also been influenced by Peter Ackerman (A Force More Powerful film & book), who I now see studied under Sharp.

I’ve been meaning to post a video clip of Sharp here (How to Start a Revolution), and when a friend alerted me to his philosophical role in the Egyptian conflict, I thought I’d do more than post the one trailer.
