A Citizen’s Guide to Politics in America: How the System Works and How to Work the System, Expanded Edition


This book is an antidote for civic apathy and disillusionment. It takes the reader step-by-step through the process of successful action for change — from the germ of an idea to finding allies, getting the word out, and building the critical mass of people, energy, and support to accomplish the desired result.
