Chicago Politics and Community Development: A Social Movement Perspective
Doug Gills, with John Betancur, did a series of books and other pieces on community organizing in the aftermath of the Washington mayoralty in the Richard M. Daley administration in the 1990s. He had earlier done a dissertation on the Task Force for Black Political Empowerment, and co-authored a book on the election of Harold Washington in 1983. Here he provides a summary of the enlargement of support coalitions basic to that election.
