This book greatly challenged me as a relatively novice community organizer. Alinsky packs the book with good, solid advice, and it is clearly the result of many years of organizing experience. I must admit, there were some ideas I had trouble with at first. Two examples of this are: the concept of taking a system for what it is and working from there, rather operating as if a system were already what you wished it were; and the idea that one cannot judge an activist/group's means to an end, unless a person lives in that cultural and historic context - i.e. that ethics are relative. As a very idealistic person, I initially found both of these ideas difficult to accept. But the book gave me excellent food for thought. Alinsky may have idealistic visions for society, but what truly sets him apart from other armchair liberals is his ability to balance these ideals with very pragmatic methods. It's hard to argue with the amount of authority and experience he has on the subject, and I would recommend the book to anyone who wants to learn the art/science of realistically creating social change.

I give this work a high rating as it is essential to know the tactics of those working to overturn the Constitution and replace it with a Communist regime.
Knowing the enemy is the key to defeating same, thus I recommend this book to all who hold liberty and not tyranny in high regard.

"Synopsis" by , 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.
