This Leaders Manual is designed to assist participants and leaders of nonviolent education programs in appreciating the full range of issues related to the philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his methodology of nonviolence conflict reconciliation. For many years the authors have conducted education and training programs in nonviolence as part of our contribution to developing future leadership in government, the private sector, and local communities. These educational programs have drawn heavily on our personal experiences working with Dr. King and the movement he led for nonviolent social change. The Leaders Manual purpose is to be a first step to systematize Dr. King's methodology and to institutionalize research, training, and education programs in nonviolence making them more accessible to others presented new challenges for us as practitioners. The Leaders Manual for nonviolent leadership education has been produced to assist communities and their leaders who have become involved in programs about Kingian nonviolence. This guide is for the practitioner - for the individual seeking methods and concepts to deal with the real problems we face as a nation and a society. It's also for beginners who are working daily to discover Dr. King's legacy of nonviolent social change and how we might bring our full moral, spiritual, and intellectual capacities to bear on the challenges we face in the future. The Manual is not a lengthy academic treatise on nonviolence or on Dr. King's life. Rather it is a point of departure toward what we hope will be a long-term journey in applying Dr. King's philosophy and methods to our lives. We invite you to join in this important effort.
