    It sounds like the authors have done worthwhile projects with students in LA But unfortunately this book is poorly organized, and their analysis of power quite shallow Likewise, their description of what community organizing is incredibly narrow, ignoring too many diverse grassroots traditions and tactics.

    The book was very interesting and gave an interesting account of the inequalities present in the public schools relative to the quality of education The book was written about ten years ago, but the situation has not improved very much It is really scary and so unfortuanate theat inner city children do not have adequate resources available to them.
