COMMITTEE OF 100
Schools for Non-Violence
Convenors and contacts of the Committee of 100 throughout the country are being urged to get a programme of education under way soon and as imaginatively as possible. The object should be to train ourselves to become more effective and more active people.
The booklet “Schools for Non-Violence”, drafted by Anthony Weaver and prefaced by Bertrand Russell, is intended to help this programme. It contains suggestions on the conduct of meetings, schools and study groups, and lists a series of questions for which we need answers, and references to eighty books which will help us in the search.
The topics outlined are: Civil Disobedience, Non-violent direct action as a defence policy, Political theory and a philosophy of conflict, Positive neutralism, Industrial action and the economics of disarmament, Psychology of violence and non-violence, Ethics and religion, Education.
If we want to make more effective and convincing propaganda, we need to have our arguments at our finger tips. This booklet will help us to educate ourselves, and others.
“Schools for Non-Violence” is published by the Committee of 100 and is obtainable from Housmans Bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road, N1, for 6d. and 2d. postage, or 5s. a dozen post free.
