Daley-Harris knows of what he speaks, for he has seen many jaded citizens transformed into powerful agents for social change. In 1980, he founded RESULTS, an international citizens' lobby dedicated to creating the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. Throughout the book he shares the stories of RESULTS volunteers who chose to get involved by first educating their representatives and then insisting that they make the elimination of poverty in the U.S. and around the world a priority. A practical how-to guide for activists, Reclaiming Our Democracy teaches readers how to build relationships with their legislators and their aides, regardless of political party, and how to generate media in order to educate the public as well as decision-makers. This inspiring and informative book helps citizens participate in their government and take the lead in solving the most daunting problems of our age. If you truly believe that a few committed people can't make a difference in the world, this book will change your mind. --Shawn Carkonen
