You can control corporate polluters, rebuild your neighborhood, develop good jobs, restructure public welfare, improve schools, or change the treatment that you receive from local police, landlords, or public administrators. Roots to Power shows you how to organize with other people to resolve problems that arise from everyday situations--not just to win one special reform or institutional change at the present time, but to build a long-term, collective power base with a capacity to win battles in the future by tapping economic, electoral, and direct-action sources of power.
A definitive reference and handbook that describes community groups and gives detailed examples of how to organize and maintain them.

It is practical and the presentation is clear and concise.... It gathers a lot of useful principles and tips about how to build and run an organization.?-Clinical Sociological Review
