Housmans has republished Gene Sharp’s influential book ‘From Dictatorship to Democracy’ (with a new foreword by Michael Randle) which offers a practical and theoretical guide to toppling dictatorships through nonviolent means.

Cited as an inspiration by democratic movements all over the world, including by activists in Egypt’s Tahir Square, we felt it was important to get this classic text back in print, for although those of us living in Western democracies do not face such extreme circumstances, the insights are just as pertinent to campaigns against unjust and irresponsible policies in our own societies, as well as enabling us to understand and respond to the stirring events across the world which are reshaping global politics in the 21st century.
