Reveille for Radicals

by ALINSKY, Saul D

Condition: See description

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1946. Second Printing. Hardcover. At the time of its publication, Jacques Maritain called Reveille for Radicals an "epoch-making" book, and time has only reinforced the enduring importance of Alinsky's work. Based upon Alinsky's own experiences in Chicago's "Back of the Yards" district during the waning years of the Great Depression, Reveille established a blueprint for community organizing that is still in use today. The book's influence (along with its 1971 update, Rules for Radicals) on the current generation of American leaders, including Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, has been much noted (in fact, Ms. Clinton's undergraduate thesis at Wellesley, "An Analysis of the Alinsky Model," was an analysis and critique of Alinsky's community organizing methods). Octavo (21cm). Black cloth boards, lettered in gilt on spine; red top-stain; price-clipped dustjacket; 228pp. Jacket extremities rather rubbed and a bit dust-soiled, 2-inch tear to bottom of rear spine fold with clear tape repair to versos, else Fine in About Very Good jacket.
