Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) 164-A with Professor Michael Nagler
Theory and Practice of Nonviolence
When Michael Nagler taught at UC Berkeley, he ran a very popular course on the theory and practice of nonviolence out of the Peace and Conflict Studies Department. The entire course was filmed and is now archived with us at the Metta Center for Nonviolence. We've set it up for you here with video and transcripts for each lecture, as well as the course reader!
