The 1999 protests of the World Trade Organization in Seattle brought the many-faceted progressive movement back into the public eye. This handbook, compiled by experienced activists Prokosch and Raymond, intends to give individuals wanting to organize for political action inspiration plus practical advice. The bulk of the book presents case studies on successful and unsuccessful protests and political action in areas such as cross-border coalition building, challenging white supremacy and globalization, taking on corporations, and mobilizing consumers. This section's 45 chapters are written by men and women currently active in the protest movement. The remainder of the book provides nuts-and-bolts advice on organizing individuals, publicity, Internet use, and facing opposition. A resource directory and glossary complete the book. This well-organized work would be useful for anyone involved in direct political action and is recommended for all libraries. Stephen L. Hupp, West Virginia Univ.
