Millions of people around the globe have participated in protests and
demonstrations over the course of history. Have those actions actually
brought about the changes they sought? We'll talk with author Brian Gruber
who co-wrote the book. It explores the victories and setbacks of 10
movements in America and three international movements including the fight
for civil rights, women's suffrage, the Arab Spring and anti-Vietnam War
protests. We'll talk about how you measure success or failure and what we
can learn from activists outside the United States.
Also, a visit with Marianna King, author of "The Crisis of School
Violence: A New Perspective". She takes an in-depth approach to
questions about bullying and shooting rampages in schools. She looks at
psychological and neuroscientific research on the effects of violent
entertainment media on brain development. King also looks at possible
solutions for parents, teachers and decision makers.
