Reading: Troublemaker's Teaparty

I found Charles Dobson's The Troublemaker's Teaparty: A Manual for Effective Citizen Action to be an excellent resource. It's well structured, fairly comprehensive, provides numerous references for further information, and emphasizes those critical areas in activism that are too often neglected for perceived expediency - especially 'community building'.

The book is also the most effective introductory guide to community action & activism that I have seen. An excellent 'how-to' for people new to activism, it's also a great reference for those whose time as activists can be measured in decades.

If there were justice in the book market, this would be a best-seller for a long, long, time.

The book is based on Dobson's extensive website The Citizen's Handbook.
