Abstract: Since the end of World War II an increasing number of social movements have claimed that they are practicing nonviolent civil disobedience tactics. Too often these claims are uncritically accepted even when proposed by movements whose rhetoric may be harsh and punitive. This paper explores the relationship between collective action frames and the practice of nonviolent and violent action tactics.
