This is a lively confrontation between Saul Alinsky, a professional activist from the United States whose efforts have been directed towards organizing the poor, and several members of the Company of Young Canadians. A dilemma of doubts is expressed in what he and the CYC members say about the means and the costs of securing social change, about the challenge facing all socially engaged people.
