Quote about Through Conflict to Negotiation

"[Through Conflict to Negotiation] shows the FIGHT organization at the height of its battle with the Kodak company through to ultimate negotiation and reconciliation. This film is a good portrayal of [Saul] Alinsky the the tactician in action. [...] Particularly interesting are the intricate maneuvers -- the use of threats and bluffs ('this is war!') -- employed to enhance FIGHT's bargaining position, and the tactics used to build morale."
-- Peter Katadotis (source)
