Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fisher (political social work, U. of Houston) updates his history of neighborhood organizing in the US to include trends since the 1984 first edition. He starts with the social welfare organizing from 1886 to the depression, through radical and conservative periods to the revolutionary 1960s and populist 1970s. An added chapter describes the organizing of the 1980s based on consensus and adaptation rather than confrontation and the certainty that a noble defeat is better than an inch of compromise.
