"This book eloquently captures the courageous and inspiring stories of ordinary people from three countries who believed that they, as individuals, could make a difference in their communities. In spite of personal sacrifice, public ridicule, and even physical threats, these 'crusaders' stepped forward to challenge the powers that be and demand change, showing that our world can--and must--be made a better place for us all."
"By conceiving of protest politics as a vital component of citizen's efforts to build a more democratic society, this book offers a more hopeful portrait of social capital in the 1990s than that of other social capital theorists."
--Christian Hunold, Environmental Politics
