What is Nonviolence?

The following introduction to Nonviolence was published by the Australian Victorian Association for Peace Studies and is now out-of-print. We reproduce it here with permission of the author.

Since it was written for a local audience, any reference to Christian peacemaking should be read as ‘faith based peacemaking’ as it is just as appropriate to make these comments about a faith based approach in other societies.
