Summary

Summary

Since its first edition in 1991, Organizing for Social Change has earned the reputation as the best book in print for grassroots organizers. Now, ten years later and in its third edition, this indispensable manual for activists continues to provide guidelines for bringing together likeminded people. The 100 new pages in this updated edition include information on using the Internet for research and a new chapter on the economic climate in the new millennium.


Summary

Lindsey Grant advocates the benefits that negative population growth provides by enhancing the standard of living in the world, decreasing the demand on vital resources, and allowing the earth to heal from years of abuse. When we let go of the "bigger is better" attitude, then great strides can be taken toward finding contentment and happiness in a world that isn't reeling from the burden of too many people.
