A textbook on the theory and practice of non-violence, written by a Dutch pacifist and anarcho-syndicalist who warns that "the more violence, the less revolution". He links Gandhi's principled non-violence with the total non-cooperation advocated by the syndicalists during the General Strike. The result is a theory of non-violent direct action which had a widespread impact on British and American pacifists of the 1930s and remains an influence on activists today.
