Celebrating Labor History: Rules for Radicals

City Lights is celebrating May Day all month by featuring books and authors we feel are essential reading for anyone interested in Labor History.


The father of modern community organization, Saul Alinsky taught a generation of activists and politicians how to effectively construct social change. In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky writes with passion and intelligence, carefully outlining “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Indispensable since its first publication in 1971, this book continues to inform and inspire all those who believe that political engagement is the key to maintaining America’s democratic tradition.
