Roots for radicals : organizing for power, action, and justice by Edward T Chambers( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fight against globalization and the war in Iraq have led to a revival of grassroots activism.

Chambers is executive director of the Industrial Areas Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting community organizing. A "radical" for Chambers is "a person who searches for meaning and affirms community." Thus, this is not an easy-to-consult handbook, but a book encouraging reflection about public life and ideals; the gap between the world "as it is" and "as it should be"; self-interest vs. self-sacrifice and other polarities; and how to create actions that receive press attention
