Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Daniel Hunter pioneered a campaign to halt a politically-connected $650-million casino development project, teaching the city of Philadelphia of the power of direct action. His book about that campaign is a rare first-person narrative of direct action campaigning. It shows what a direct action campaign really looks and feels like, with abundant lessons about direct action strategy for other movements.

He's been a campaigner with groups ranging from Canadian postalworkers union, to Quaker-based groups fighting mountaintop removal, to Philadelphia campaigns for affordable housing. He is highly sought after as a trainer with Training for Change, focusing on long-term strategy development and training trainers in popular education.

His home is in West Philadelphia, PA, where he lives with his cherished life partner, dog, cat, and solar panels.

I'm an activist lawyer in Colombia; hence, very far away from the anti-casino movement in Philadelphia, of which I knew nothing about until now. Nevertheless, this book has sparked millions of ideas about the local struggles I'm involved in and given me a great platform to reflect on the way lawyers and the legal system relate to social movements. Its honesty and story-telling style make you want to know what happened next, connecting to so many names and ways of being that resounded as all too familiar to me. Anyone involved in social justice and movement building should read it. Anywhere in the world.

Reading Daniel's book transported me right back into the thick of things! Meeting so many wonderful people dedicated to saving our neighborhoods was a rich (and successful!) experience. Daniel explains how he and Jethro implemented the strategy critical to our success. They led by example showing "average" citizens who had no prior experience with activism, how to stand up to City Hall, the Governor, the casino investors and state legislators fighting for their beliefs and their homes. It was a modern day Revolution just steps away from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Our fight continues to this day as the PA Legislature is preparing to approve another casino license in Philadelphia.

Format: Paperback
One of the things I love about this book is the way Daniel Hunter reveals his feelings through the ups and downs of the dramatic campaign against Philadelphia casinos. He shares his tears and fears, as well as his keen observations about how to motivate and inspire people. It's full of useful lessons but told through an engaging story with very human characters. You just can't help but root for this small band of intrepid citizens successfully taking on the big money interests that are threatening their communities.

A must read, particularly if you're lost in life or don't have set goals or need help establishing direction.
The Philly community deserves so much praise for this story.
