There are many ways for us to manage manipulation, whether it originates from an individual, a group, or a government. But, firstly, we need to recognise and understand a manipulative act, how it... More > works, its motives, and why we, in particular, are its victims. Manipulation generally relies on human ignorance. So the better we are informed, the better our chances of detecting and managing manipulation when it is directed at us. To this end, the author seeks to illuminate "Human Manipulation" at all levels. This analysis provides the reader with a detailed definition, an understanding of the history and morality of human manipulation and an insight into the psychology of the manipulator and their victim. The book then examines some 450 manipulative techniques in detail and explains what a victim can do to recognise, avoid and counteract them. This handbook is probably the most comprehensive study of human manipulation anywhere. It is a "must have" for any serious student of the subject.< Less

In this case, the democratic deficit is being by-passed using various forms of civil rebellion. This book is a practical guide to using civil disobedience in nonviolent resistance. It describes over 300 methods of protest and how to plan and manage effective, targeted protest campaigns....a "must have" for every activist.< Less
