Come Hell or High Water: A Handbook on Collective Process Gone Awry
Come Hell or High Water: A Handbook on Collective Process Gone Awry helps individuals navigate the world of directly democratic social groups. From their experiences working with egalitarian and anarchist organizations, Delfina Vannucci and Richard Singer offer a street-level view of how social relationships and power work.
Lessons are often learned after the fact, and hindsight is 20/20, and Come Hell or High Water offers readers both in this little gem.
Critical, humorous, and prophetic, this book is a must-read for those new to egalitarian groups, as well as the salty old vet that thinks they've got it all figured out. It's a tough world out there; it's a world that doesn't prepare us for developing social relationships based on trust, caring, and solidarity—as well as a healthy respect for differences. Whether playing a role in an anarchist organization, horizontal social or political group, worker co-op, or trying to incorporate egalitarian processes where they don't already exist, Come Hell or High Water will help keep you focused on the positives and help you avoid common pitfalls.
