Public Domain Appendixpublic license for From Dictatorship to Democracy

At the end of the fourth U.S. edition of Gene Sharp’s From Dictatorship to Democracy:

Appendix Three: A Note About Translations and Reprinting of this Publication

To facilitate dissemination of this publication it has been placed in the public domain. That means that anyone is free to reproduce it or disseminate it.

The author, however, does have several requests that he would like to make, although individuals are under no legal obligation to follow such requests.

Another relevant quote, from 76, on producing a new constitution:

The wording of the constitution should be easily understood by the majority of the population. A constitution should not be so complex or ambiguous that only lawyers or other elites can claim to understand it.
