Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

First published in 1971, Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.


Review:
This primers tells the "have-nots" how they can organize to achieve real political power for the practice of true democracy.

Summary: "This country's leading hell-raiser.has set down some of the rules of the game. No one has had more experience or has been more successful at it than Alinsky." -- The Nation "Alinsky's techniques and teachings influenced generations of community and labor organizers, including the church-based group hiring a young [Barack] Obama to work on Chicago's South Side in the 1980s. Alinsky impressed a young [Hillary] Clinton, who was growing up in Park Ridge at the time Alinsky was the director of the Industrial Areas Foundation in Chicago." -- Chicago Sun-Times "Alinsky is that rarity in American life, a superlative organizer, strategist, and tactician who is also a social philosopher." --Charles E. Silberman "He cannot be bought; he cannot be intimidated; and he breaks all the rules." -- The Economist (London) "I consider him to be one of the few really great men of our century." --Jacques Maritain.
