History indicates that there are powerful routes to liberation from
oppression that do not involve violence. Mohandas Gandhi called for a science of nonviolent action, one based on satyagraha, or the "insistence on truth." As Gandhi understood, nonviolent
resistance is not passive, nor is it weak; rather, such action is an exercise of power. Despite the success of Gandhi's "Quit India" movement, the resources dedicated to the application of rigorous science to nonviolent struggle have been vanishingly small. By contrast, almost unimaginable levels of financial and human resources have been devoted to the science and technologies of killing, war, and collective violence. Mark Mattaini reviews the
history and theory of nonviolent struggles against oppression and
discusses recent research that indicates the substantial need for and advantage of nonviolent alternatives. He then offers a detailed
exploration of principles of behavioral systems science that appear to underlie effective strategic civil resistance and "people

Strategic Nonviolent Power proposes that the route to what
Gandhi described as the "undreamt of and seemingly impossible
discoveries" of nonviolent resistance is the application of rigorous science. Although not a simple science, Mattaini's application of ecological science grounded in the science of behaviour brings exceptional power to the struggle for justice and liberation. At
a time when civil resistance is actively reshaping global political
realities, the science of nonviolent struggle deserves the attention of the scientific, activist, strategic, military, spiritual, and diplomatic communities, as well as the informed public.
