Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber, tells the exciting stories of people who chose non-violent resistance in times of conflict. A war hero who refused to kill again; students who stood up to a dictator; a ship which sailed into a nuclear test zone; a whole village which used non-violence against the Nazis. These twenty stories from New Zealand and the world show that peaceful resistance and people power can be more effective than military force.
