Elliott Bay Book Company says
Paul Engler, founding director for the Center for the Working Poor and now lead trainer at Movement Mastery, presents strategies and paths of action to address some of our nation’s most intractable problems in This Is an Uprising: How Nonviolent Revolt Is Shaping the Twenty-First Century (Nation Books), co-authored with his brother Mark Engler.

Part history of rebellion, part guide map to successful political change, the Englers lay out their revolutionary framework for effective mobilization—what they call momentum-driven organizing—in what Bill McKibben has deemed “a landmark book.”

"Building a truly mass, nonviolent resistance movement is key to solving the twin crises of climate change and gaping inequality. Thankfully, the dynamics of past uprisings are not some inscrutable mystery—and as Mark and Paul Engler so vividly show here, today’s organizers are building on a deep and rich political tradition. As absorbing as it is ambitious, this indispensable book is studded with memorable stories and sharp arguments.”—Naomi Klein

Co-presented with Yes! Magazine. YES! co-founder and editor-at-large Sarah van Gelder will also be on hand to introduce the program and join in the conversation.
