ACORN: New Book Tells the Real Story Behind the Headlines

“The public knows little about [ACORN], that lightning rod for right-wing abuse.  No one has written more informatively about this difficult, necessary work than John Atlas.”
-Todd Gitlin, author of The Sixties: Years of Hope, Days of Rage

“A knowledgeable and empathetic observer, but never an apologist, Atlas has now written the definitive work on ACORN.”
-Samuel G. Freedman, author of Letters to a Young Journalist
