Robin Hood Was Right: A Guide to Giving Your Money for Social Change
by Chuck Collins and Pam Rogers with Joan P. Garner
"At a time when the gap between the rich and poor in our country has become enormous, here is a refreshing antidote: a book that gives those of us who are not poor some practical advice on how to help narrow that gap. What is crucially important about Robin Hood Was Right is that the authors insist on going beyond traditional philanthropy. Their objective is long-term and fundamental: to change the social conditions responsible for poverty and other forms of social justice. This book is bold in its philosophy and down to earth in its applications of that philosophy." ~Howard Zinn

We Make Change; Community Organizers Talk About What They Do - and Why
by Kristin Layng Szakos and Joe Szakos
This book explores the world of community organizing through the voices of real people working in the field, in small towns and city neighborhoods - women and men of different races and economic backgrounds, ranging in age from those in their twenties to those in their sixties. Fourteen in-depth profiles tell the life stories of a cross-section of the diverse people who choose the life of an organizer. Other chapters, focus on issues of organizing, are tapestries of experience woven from the 81 interviews the authors conducted.
