Editorial Reviews


?The message in Lee Staples' Roots to Power is in the subtitle: A Manual for Grassroots Organizing. His organizing model emphasizes the individual and direct participation.... It is practical and the presentation is clear and concise.... It gathers a lot of useful principles and tips about how to build and run an organization.?-Clinical Sociological Review

Format: Paperback
If you want to bring about change (or stop change) in your neighborhood or in society at large, you should read this book. Organize a group, develop a leader, recruit members, foster their confidence that they do really have power. The book describes the role of the paid organizer in detail. It helps me understand better who Obama is. I'm a Tea Party free-enterprise advocate. This book has some good ideas for us, too.
