Organizing for Social Change, 4th edition
Now in its fourth edition, with updates reflecting changes in contexts and technologies, this is an organizer’s Bible: a comprehensive, real-world tool for organizers of all stripes determined to create attention and affect change. Compiled by leaders of the Midwest Academy, a respected training ground for serious union, community and nonprofit organizers since 1973, the book deals with everything from tactics to the mechanics of how to track a campaign, from coalition-building to using the media to supervising less experienced organizers.
The book outlines specific steps, lists and charts to help organizers move through the phases of a campaign, a solid index to help readers zero in on a specific topic or problem, and a great list of resources. More than 60,000 copies have been sold since the first edition was published in 1991. 426 pages paperback
