The Spirit of Gandhi is Alive and Well and Living in East Boston. A Special Tribute to UMass Dartmouth Prof. Emeritus Gene Sharp.
Gene Sharp, PhD, an emeritus UMass Dartmouth professor, has been publicaly acknowledged as, “…the man who changed the world.” (Boston Globe editorial, Feb. 12, 2011). University of New Mexico sociologist, Sharon Nepsted adds, “Thanks to Sharp, we can now realistically envision a world without war.” Twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, the subject of a full-length award winning documentary, the brains behind the successful nonviolent strategies of “Arab Spring,” the dictator’s worst nightmare, the author of 11 books, translated into 27 languages, and the world’s foremost expert of nonviolent intervention, we honor our colleague Gene Sharp for his contributions to UMass Dartmouth, to the world at large, to peace and justice, and a nonviolent future for generations to come.
