Reveille for Radicals

[RADICAL & PROLETARIAN LITERATURE] ALINSKY, Saul D.

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1946. First Edition. 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). First printing. Octavo (21cm). Black cloth boards, lettered in gilt on spine; red top-stain; dustjacket; 228pp. Previous owners last name neatly rubber-stamped to endpapers, boards a trifle dusty and lightly worn; Very Good+ to Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.50), edgeworn and spine-sunned, with several small nicks and short tears, several of which are tape mended on verso; Very Good.

This marked the beginning oa a dramatic rebirth of democracy now spreading amongst the people jammed in AmericaÕs industrial areas. As Executive Director of the Industrial Areas Foundation and technical advisor to various peopleÕs movements, Mr. Alinsky has done the job he set out to do - to help the common people, through their own democratic organizations, to stake out a definite claim in the future of America.

Reveille for Radicals

Alinsky, Saul D.

Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press, 1946. Presumed first edition/first printing. Hardcover. Good. No dust jacket. Parts of torn DJ present. Cover has wear and soiling.. 228 p. 22 cm. From a posting on-line: "Legendary community organizer Saul Alinsky inspired a generation of activists and politicians with Reveille for Radicals, the original handbook for social change. Alinsky writes both practically and philosophically, never wavering from his belief that the American dream can only be achieved by an active democratic citizenship. First published in 1946 and updated in 1969 with a new introduction and afterword, this classic volume is a bold call to action that still resonates today." From Wikipedia: "Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer, and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals. In the course of nearly four decades of political organizing, Alinsky received much criticism, but also gained praise from many public figures. His organizing skills were focused on improving the living conditions of poor communities across North America. In the 1950s, he began turning his attention to improving conditions in the African-American ghettos, beginning with Chicago's and later traveling to other ghettos in California, Michigan, New York City, and a dozen other "trouble spots"."
