Is There No Other Way? is the mature work of one of the world's most widely respected peace scholars and activists. Beginning with the achievements of Mahatma Gandhi, and following the legacy of nonviolence through the struggles against Nazism in Europe, racism in America, oppression in China and Latin America, and ethnic conflicts in Africa and Bosnia, Nagler unveils a hidden history. Nonviolence, he proposes, has proven its power against arms and social injustice wherever it has been correctly understood and applied.

Nagler's approach is not only historical, but also spiritual. He argues, drawing upon the experience of Gandhi and other activists, that the shift to nonviolence begins within the individual, through the reshaping and re-visioning of how one understands the world. He then shows how from changes in the individual, changes in the larger community follow.

Is There No Other Way? is a provocative and emotionally powerful document that challenges readers' assumptions about the workings of power in their homes and communities, as well as the larger political arena.

"Michael Nagler is one of America's contemporary pioneers in the field of nonviolence. For anyone seeking to strategize a peaceful future, "The Search for a Nonviolent Future" is a must-read."-- Marianne Williamson, author of "Everyday Grace""I really appreciate that Michael has had the courage and knowledge to write such a book."-- Former Vice President Al Gore"Every political leader and every teacher should be required to read this book."-- Rabbi Michael Lerner, author of "Spirit Matters"
