GENE SHARP (1928 - 2018)

The New Press notes with sadness the passing of Gene Sharp, whose commitment to nonviolence and peaceful resistance inspired generations of activists around the world. As an adviser to both governments and resistance movements, Sharp was one of the most influential and effective promoters of nonviolent resistance to autocratic governments. 

With major philanthropic support, The New Press has undertaken a collaborative effort with the re-entry program created and run by Susan Burton to place over 10,000 copies of Burton’s memoir in prisons, jails, re-entry programs, and community centers across the country. Written with Cari Lynn, Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women chronicles Burton’s own years of incarceration followed by successful re-entry and activism.
