With its gutsy, creative and rousing tales of ordinary people creating extraordinary change, "Small Acts of Resistance" proves that it is possible - armed with a little ingenuity and a lot of passion - to bring down dictators, change unfair laws, fight injustice and raise one's voice in freedom by defying those who would deny it. Spanning the globe and history, this puts a pop culture spin on human rights with its accessible and inspiring approach to international activism. Moving from Albania to Zimbabwe, and throughout Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe, this offers an engaging collection of over 100 stories celebrating courage, perseverance and the resilience of the human spirit.Über den Autor:
