    In Writings on Civil Disobedience and Nonviolence Tolstoy is a little heavy on the Christianity for me even if he is talking about the good Jesus Christianity rather than the bad institutional Christianity I gave it three stars, an extra one because the topic of nonviolent civil disobedience is not found in much writing I found it hard to get to the end of this book It began to seem like I was reading the same thing over and over Tolstoy s writing is from 150 years ago and represents a part In Writings on Civil Disobedi...
