From the Publisher:

ALL THE POWER is an "anti-manifesto" from Washington DC's leading political activist, offering a contemporary update of Saul Alinsky's RULES FOR RADICALS for the launch of the new Akashic imprint, PUNK PLANET BOOKS.

With a preface by Jennifer Baumgardner, author of MANIFESTA: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future

From the Inside Flap:

"Mark loves to dance with words: He finds struggle in right as well as wrong, all the while keeping time with a cadence of thoughts and approaches. He is a free-agent believer open to possibility. His decision to reflect on his personal journey through what he refers to as 'revolution' may lull the reader with the packaging, as the written word is often mistaken for the truth. The fact that questions in a written form can at times resemble answers is a danger for most activist writers, as well as writing activists. Be that as it may, it is Mark's content, the inexhaustible work ethic and boundless hope for the better, that serves as the true ballast of his conviction."
IAN MACKAYE

"Does organized rebellion need its own Martha Stewart? Relax, this isn't it. In your grasp is a heartfelt, brick-by-brick guide from a committed veteran activist on heart, soul, music, his own life's surprises, and how we can all bring ongoing change to our own communities."
JELLO BIAFRA

"Mark Andersen is the living Holden Caulfield, committed to making the world a better place for all its children. This book reflects his deep caring and concern for the human condition, urging us to hold onto the dream of King and find a way to come together, again, toward humane revolutionary change."
ELAINE BROWN, former Chairman of the Black Panther Party

"By naming some of the difficult, unanswered questions from past movements, All The Power opens up exciting conversations about how to proceed in today's world. This fascinating examination of activism over the past fifty years is a must-read for anyone wanting to contribute effectively to movements for change."
CATHY WILKERSON, Students For a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground

"Mark's decency and vision are both appealing and effective in suggesting practical strategies to make systemic change. All the Power is an incisive and important look at past and present North American radicalism that can help us build a better world."
HEATHER BOOTH, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, cofounder of "Jane" collective and Midwest Academy
