Revolts against authoritarian regimes don’t always succeed - but they're more likely to if they embrace civil resistance rather than violence. Over the last century, nonviolent campaigns have been twice as likely to succeed as violent ones and they increase the chances that toppling a dictatorship will lead to peace and democracy.

Lots of great examples and a convincing argument about the efficacy of nonviolent efforts to achieve social change. Contrast with violent insurgencies is effective. Good narrator. Highly recommended.
