How do women talk about peace and violence? What moves ordinary women into extraordinary activism? This book profiles ten influential women activists, relating their experiences and rhetorically analyzing their public communication in and about their efforts for peace. Authors also employ feminist theory to gauge the effectiveness of each activist, from Americans Ida B. Wells and Jane Addams to those still speaking for peace, such as Liberia's Ruth Perry and the former Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi. Visit our website for sample chapters!

". . . This is essential reading for anyone who wants to make sense of the freeze movement or make nuclear policy more responsive to democratic processes." Pam Solo Co-director, Institute for Peace and International Security "A rare achievement, combining impeccable scholarly research with lively, readable prose. . . . It is at the same time a careful, thoughtful history of the recent nuclear freeze movement, and a sophisticated analysis of the problem of social change in this country, using that movement as a test. The synthesis of theory and history is accomplished with great skill, making the book valuable to students of social change and to a larger public." Howard Zinn Professor of Political Science Boston University
