Rules For Radicals

By Alinsky, Saul D

Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals is the last book written by community organizer Saul D. Alinsky before his death in 1972. Published in 1971, it was Alinsky's attempt to impart his theory and methods of organizing to the current generation of young activists, largely drawing upon his own experiences. Alinsky wrote in the book's prologue: "What I have to say in this book is not the arrogance of unsolicited advice.
