What people are saying about The Civil Disobedience Handbook
“Tracy combines historical documents with his own essays, drawing from his
considerable political-organizing experience in San Francisco — with the
Coalition on Homelessness and Mission Agenda — to deliver sound advice to
those who would make ruckus, not war.” -SF WEEKLY
“A stellar collection for that younger sibling about to embark on the long
(but glorious) road of dissent. “-AK PRESS
