 About the Book 

David A. J. Richards examines the lives of five famous male crusaders and political leaders who resisted violence if possible and presented their causes more humanely. Disarming Manhood argues that Winston Churchill, William Lloyd Garrison, Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Leo Tolstoy shared an alternative psychology, springing from the religious outlook of their mothers and other maternal figures, that enabled them to resist traditional male responses to challenges.
