Paul Loeb has written five widely acclaimed books, published dozens of articles, and presented in hundreds of venues about the critical role citizens make in improving community conditions and mobilizing for social change. In April 2010, St. Martin's released Paul Rogat Loeb's wholly updated exploration of citizen involvement, Soul of a Citizen: Living with Conviction in Challenging Times. Th e new edition is already in its fourth printing. With over 100,000 copies in print, Soul's original version has become a classic handbook for budding social activists, veteran organizers, and anyone who wants to make a difference--large or small. An antidote to powerlessness and despair, it has inspired thousands of citizens to make their voices heard and actions count--and then stay involved for the long haul.
