Representing both an homage to, and a departure from the alinsky traditions of organizing, Consensus Organizing offers techniques that are specifically designed for urban and rural communities struggling to succeed in the global economy and the information age. Ohmer and DeMasi are experienced organizers who offer a relentlessly thorough examination of the process of bringing diverse communities together to make change and to bridge the ethnic and economic divisions that keep many communities from succeeding.-Bill Traynor Executive Director, Lawrence CommunityWorks Inc.
