Book Club: David and Goliath
Required Reading:
- David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell


《David and Goliath》講有權勢者的限制及無權勢者的優勢。美國六十年代黑人藉公民抗命成功爭取平權,雖是歷史洪流中的偶然,卻是社會趨勢中的必然。牧羊少年大衛打贏巨人哥利亞,靠的是戰略而非運氣。


The theme of David and Goliath is about the limits of power and the power of the powerless. In the 1960s, African-Americans made noted achievements in their battle for civil rights through acts of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience. Some say the movement turned the tide of history, but it is also inevitable in the evolution of society. David’s victory over Goliath was not pure luck, but his strategy.
