Epigraph
We have frequently printed the word Democracy. Yet I cannot too often repeat that it is a word the real gist of which still sleeps, quite unawakened, notwithstanding the resonance and the many angry tempests out of which its syllables have come, from pen or tongue. It is a great word, whose history, I suppose, remains unwritten, because that history has yet to be enacted. - Walt Whitman, Democratic Vistas
Dedication
The Backyard Revolution is dedicated, with great respect, to a new generation of organizer-trainers: Heather Booth, ernie Cortes, Si Kahn, Steve Max, and all those who teach the skills of democracy.
