The Inquisition was an institution that pursued heretics, philandering priests and sexual deviants for a period of over 350 years, changing its focus with the times and enduring stubbornly into the 19th century. The word implies fear and a withheld threat of torture. But who were its targets? Why did it provoke such fear? And why was it founded?
How To Change The World combines insights from Tolstoy, Gandhi and Sartre and outlines a refreshing theory of political power, giving examples of successful non-violent action from across the world, from the start of recorded history to the present day. Of course, we don't all need to topple dictators, but any attempt to change the status quo requires us to overcome inertia, indifference and perhaps active hostility from people who feel threatened. This book explores the idea that we can break down our goals into small pieces, and highlights that there will never be a better time to start. Bursting with ideas, this book will give you a sense of what might just be possible, as well as the inspiration and the courage you need to go about improving and changing the world we live in.
