Additional selections include Leo Tolstoy's denouncement of capital punishment, I Cannot Be Silent; Bertrand Russell's Civil Disobedience and the Threat of Nuclear Warfare; and Love, Law, and Civil Disobedience and Letter from Birmingham City Jail by Martin Luther King, Jr. Other contributors include William Lloyd Garrison, Albert Einstein, and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
