What are the concrete tactics of nonviolence that flip violence to cascades of nonviolence? By documenting and analysing seven â€˜cascadesâ€™ of armed violence and nonviolent resistance of the past century, violence and nonviolence are reinterpreted as global contagions. A singular objective like regime change in Iraq or Afghanistan cascades to other layers of violence. A single layer of nonviolent resistance in Tunisia can cascade to the Arab Spring. The aim is a new, distinctive cascade theory of the spread of violence, a theory of why nonviolence cascades have been more successful and nonviolence more widely used since 1945 than in previous history.
