by Michael Jacoby Brown
“Brown distills more than 30 years of organizing into his book, which every aspiring and veteran activist should own. Building Powerful Community Organizations can be read straight through as a primer on how to become an activist. Or, it can be a reference for specific problems. …This book is strongly recommended.”
—Library Journal (Starred review)
“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Clearly relevant to precinct organizing and political campaigns.”
—Michael S. Dukakis
“Full of organizing truths and detailed advances in practical democratic action.”
