About this title:

Synopsis: In 'Organizing the Culture of Death' author Stephanie Block details the influence of Alinskyian community organizers who infiltrate religious organizations in the United States in order to advance progressive political agendas. Among contemporary politicians who were personally familiar with Saul Alinsky - the author of 'Rules for Radicals' and a school for community organizing - are Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. In her latest book, author Block gives personal accounts of the influence of Alinskyian political principles among religious leaders and their communities. Ironically, for Christians and Jews, Alinsky dedicated his "Rules for Radicals" to Lucifer, who he described as the first rebel. The Machiavellian vision represented by Alinsky and his students is compared to the Judeo-Christian tradition and its respect for human life and basic human dignity. In "Organizing the Culture of Death", Block provides a fast-paced introduction to her lengthy four-volume opus "Change Agents: Alinskyian Organizing among Religious Bodies" and one that is handy and useful for communities of faith and students of politics and community action.
