Remember Saul Alinsky's classic guide to community rebel-rousing, Rules for Radicals? Bill Lee's Pragmatics of Community Organization is an updated-and much more Canadian-approach to the same issue: how to work with grassroots communities to achieve empowerment and social justice. The book is a primer for social work students as well as for those who are just beginning to do community development work. It is also a valuabk tool for community-based planners and for other, more experienced community practitioners. Barbara Loevinger Rahder reviews Pragmatics of community organization (3rd ed.) by Bill Lee (Mississauga: CommonAct Press, 1999).
