Ganz s thoughtful book is not so much a history of the UFW and the farmworker movement as an interpretation of its early success in the mid 1960s as an example of the efficacy of what he calls strategic capacity the ability to turn the various resources organizers have at their disposal into the power they need to achieve their objectivesGiven his high profile role in advising Barack Obama s campaign not to mention his current position at Harvard Ganz has a good platform now to revisit the turf he worked as a young organizer And the lessons he draws do indeed resonate now especially his discussions of the dynamics of effective and adaptive leadership
