"Walzer's how-to book for activists, reissued, feels newly relevant." --The New York Times Book Review

"The idea of republishing this book came from some highschool students in Los Angeles. They were part of a social justice group at their school, and most of the projects they were contemplating involved organizing of some kind. To help them think about that, their faculty adviser, Mickey Morgan...photocopied parts of Political Action and handed it out. 'This is really good!' they told him. 'This is what we need.' What the kids said next became the impetus for this new edition: 'Why is there nothing like this?'" --from the new introduction by Jon Wiener

Michael Walzer is a professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He served as the co-editor of the political journal Dissent for more than three decades and has written about a wide variety of topics in political theory and moral philosophy. His most recent book is A Foreign Policy for the Left.

Jon Wiener is the host and producer of Start Making Sense, The Nation's weekly podcast, and a longtime contributing editor at The Nation.
