Nina,

I can provide a PDF file to be downloaded or, if you provide an address, i can mail a hard copy, although that is a tad expensive outside of the USA. Let me know ... if your NGO does not have good computer access, a hard copy will probably be better.

 

Peace and Love,

I set out to show that nonviolence could deal with Hitler.

My novel, Denmark Rising, is lavishly praised as a compelling, impossible-to-put-down story that convincingly shows the Danes largely foiling Hitler with nonviolent strategies. It expands the possible and fires our imagination.

If you will read it, I will send you a free copy. Peace and Grace,

Dr. Barry Clemson
