Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Learn how the wisdom of one man has inspired peaceful revolution across the globe as filmmaker Ruaridh Arrow profiles From Dictatorship to Democracy author Gene Sharp, whose non-violent tactics for toppling dictators have been employed not only in Egypt, but also by protestors throughout Eastern Europe. Additional interviews with Retired U.S. Army Colonel Robert Helvey - a staunch supporter of Sharp - highlight the effectiveness of techniques detailed in From Dictatorship to Democracy as additional conversations with Serbian and Iranian revolutionaries reveal precisely how those methods are put into action.
