"Another chapter in the Canadian Film Board's casebook on the teachings of Saul Alinsky, People and Power was made during his first tour through Canada in 1968. Although only half the length of Deciding to Organise, the greater flexibility of its format—bypassing the civics-lecture style to catch the man in confrontation with individuals and groups—makes this item rather more stimulating."
