Essays on Civil Disobedience

Inexpensive but substantial, this anthology ranges from Henry David Thoreau's great nineteenth-century polemics “Civil Disobedience” and “Slavery in Massachusetts” to more recent writings by Aung San Suu Kyi as well as Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of the subversive Russian rock group Pussy Riot.Additional selections include Leo Tolstoy's denouncement of capital punishment, “I Cannot Be Silent”; Bertrand Russell's “Civil Disobedience and the Threat of Nuclear Warfare”; and “Love, Law, and Civil Disobedience” and “Letter from Birmingham City Jail” by Martin Luther King, Jr. Other contributors include William Lloyd Garrison, Albert Einstein, and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Editor Bob Blaisdell provides an informative Introduction.
