First published in 1971, Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.

Rule's for Radical's
The play book for the OBAMA administration.
Everyone should read this book. It's a sneak peek into the dark world of community organizing, something our dear president was very much involved in. If you love this country and don't want to see it fundamentally transformed by the folks who have a deep disdain for who we are, you need to study up on how these people think and the methods they use.

The reason it says over 90 reviews but only a few are shown is because people only rated it with a star rating and did not do a write up. It's not a "vast right-wing conspiracy ".
