Rules For Radicals, Alinsky, Saul D.



Fourth printing of the 1971 first edition. "Lest we forget... the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer." - page ix. "The revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, 'Burn the system down!' They have no illusions about the system, but plenty of illusions about the way to change the world. It is to this point that I have written this book." - page xiii. xxvi, 196 pages. Several pencil markings have been erased, otherwise contents clean, bright and unmarked. Binding tight. Light wear to publisher's black cloth brilliantly lettered in gilt upon backstrip. Light wear to price-clipped dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. A sound early copy of this influential work.
