"A hymn to the mystery of disobedience... What makes you eager to push this book into the hands of the next person you meet are the small, still moments, epics captured in miniature....Essential.' - Mark Oppenheimer, The New York TimesHistory has produced many specimens of the banality of evil, but what about its flipside, what impels ordinary people to defy the sway of authority and convention? Through these dramatic stories of unlikely resisters, Eyal Press shows that the boldest acts of dissent are often carried out not only by radicals seeking to overthrow the system but also by true believers who cling with unusual fierceness to their convictions. Drawing on groundbreaking research by moral psychologists and neuroscientists, this deeply reported work of narrative journalism examines the choices and dilemmas we all face when our principles collide with the loyalties we harbor and the duties we are expected to fulfill.- For readers of Zlata Filipovic and Ismael Beah
