"A stinging indictment of what the authors call the 'non-profit industrial complex.'" -- Elisabeth Prugl * Signs *
"Fiery" * Utne Reader *
"A crucial intervention into mainstream ways of thinking about political organization and social change." -- Ryne Clos * Spectrum Culture *
"Powerfully demonstrate[s] what we too often forget: our attempts at securing safety for ourselves and our communities are subject to much more powerful attempts by the state and society to make itself safe-including to make itself safe from us and our most radical, challenging, revolutionary, feminist ideas." -- Ruthann Robson * Women's Studies Quarterly *
"Although The Revolution Will Not Be Funded presents no easy answers for those of us struggling both to make a living and to create social change, it exhorts us to put the consideration of our movements' missions, and the way we fulfill them, before considerations of organizational and job security-and to regularly revisit within our organizations the question of whether the form and the content of our work are essentially compatible." -- Christy Thornton * NACLA Report on the Americas *
