Description - Roots for Radicals by Edward T. Chambers
The successor to the legendary activist Saul Alinsky, Edward T. Chambers pioneered a set of principles and practices that have guided community organizations throughout the US and the world. Roots for Radicals remains his definitive reflection on these fundamental principles of community activism: how, as public citizens, we can navigate the gap between the world as it is and as it should be, between self-interest and self-sacrifice and in doing so create lasting change for our communities.
In the face of the increasingly turbulent politics of the 21st-century, Chambers's book has never been more relevant.
