As promised here is a list of books I have in my collection that deal with the subjects of political activism, organizing, leadership development, and community organizing. Those I have marked with an asterisk (*) have proven to be especially useful to me.
* "How People Get Power", by Si Kahn. 1994 (Latest edition) * "Organizing", by Si Kahn. 1991 ( " " )
"Political Organizing in Grassroots Politics", by Daniel Russell. 1990 ( Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now or ACORN's organizing handbook).
"Rules for Radicals", By Saul Alinsky. 1971
"War Resister League--Organizer's Manual. 1981 (You may have to look for this in an academic library, as it is out of print).
* "Resource Manual for a Living Revolution", by Virginia Coover, et al. 1981
* "Organizing for Power and Empowerment", by Jacqueline B. Mondros and Scott M. Wilson. 1994 (An amazing book, has a chapter called Maintaining and Deepening Membership Participation...)
"Organizing for Community Action", by Steve Burghardt. 1982
"NORML Activist Packet", Available for $15 from National NORML. I recently purchased a copy and have found it to be an excellent resource. A must for any marijuana activist.
"Why We Can't Wait", by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. 1964 (This is a first hand account of the campaign to desegregate Birmingham, Alabama. Great stuff on CD in America).

The Art of Coalition Building: A Guide for Community Leaders by Cheri Brown, 1984, 45 pages, $3.50 This handbook takes the reader through the step-by-step process of coalition building. Chapters include: Getting Started; Choosing Realistic Positions and Finding Allies; Developing Effective Leadership Skills; How a Coalition Functions Internally;
How to Negotiate and Resolve Conflicts; and
Building Unity Across Ethnic, Religious and Class Divisions. This generic
coalition-building guide highlights many of the difficulties that are likely to emerge.
Especially helpful is a six-page coalition checklist to guide the reader through the
process. Available from the National Coalition Building Institute, 1835 K Street N.W.,
Suite 715, Washington, DC 20006, (202)785-9400.
