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

About the Author:

Saul Alinsky was born in Chicago in 1909 and educated first in the streets of that city and then in its university. Graduate work at the University of Chicago in criminology introduced him to the Capone gang, and later to Joliet State Prison, where he studied prison life. He founded what is known today as the Alinsky ideology and Alinsky concepts of mass organization for power. His work in organizing the poor to fight for their rights as citizens has been internationally recognized. In the late 1930s he organized the Back of the Yards area in Chicago (the neighborhood made famous in Upton Sinclair's The Jungle). Subsequently, through the Industrial Areas Foundation which he began in 1940, Mr. Alinsky and his staff helped to organize communities not only in Chicago but throughout the country. He later turned his attentions to the middle class, creating a training institute for organizers. He died in 1972.

RareNonFiction, IOBA
(Ladysmith, BC, Canada)

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: Good. Fifth Printing. "Lest we forget. the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer." - page ix. "The revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, 'Burn the system down!' They have no illusions about the system, but plenty of illusions about the way to change the world. It is to this point that I have written this book." - page xiii. xxvi, 196 pages. Contents clean and unmarked. Binding tight. Moderate wear to black cloth-covered boards. Includes new replica dust jacket preserved in glossy archival-grade Brodart. A sound early [fifth printing] copy of this influential work. Seller Inventory # 344h1392
