On this edition of Peace Talks Radio, we speak with an author who dives into the efforts of "committed citizens" trying to change the world.  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.
