Tim Stafford explores the patterns of successful and failed reform movements to highlight what activists today can learn. How can activists keep from burning out? How can they avoid the lure of violence? What are ways to engage politics that are at once practical and ethical? The great American reform movements of the last two centuries have an abundance of down-to-earth guidance to offer on these and other vital questions.
Vision: This book casts a vision of what it costs and what it might take to maintain a lifestyle as an activist. Certainly important for those passionate about a cause. Also important for those who would care for people who live with this kind of life long passion.
