Rules for Radicals (Tactics in Graphics)
Saul Alinsky (1909–1972) wrote the Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals in 1971. The author-activist wanted to create a template for community organisers and hence this book. He also wanted to unite and empower the Have-Nots to raise their voices. It was his conviction that the existing establishment is the main antagonist besides being the agents of inequality and injustice. In Rules for Radicals (Tactics in Graphics), we focus on the rule of power tactics or simply tactics. A March 1970 edition of the Times exclaimed: ‘It is not too much to argue that American democracy is being altered by Alinsky's ideas’.
