Did punk rock free Serbia?

When it comes to revolution, you can't get much more street cred than one of the founders of Otpor!, the resistance group that helped bring down Serbian president Slobodan Milošević.  Turns out, he's also pretty funny.  This is an entertaining, accessible, and briskly-paced read about building non-violent movements that actually work.  Part history lesson -- Popović touches on practically every popular revolution, successful or otherwise, in the last thirty years and more -- part memoir, part inspirational, and a whole lot of fun.  Whether you want to change the world or make a small difference in your local community, Popović's methods, clear-eyed common sense, and sense of humor will give you plenty to think about.
