I am very pleased to announce the availability of two new COMM-
ORG papers.  Both papers are authored by Peter Szynka.  

The first, "Community Organizing and the Alinsky Tradition in 
Germany" brings COMM-ORG a much-needed international 

The second paper, "Three Alinskys?", brings COMM-ORG back to 
its roots, with an interesting historical perspective.

You can find the papers at the COMM-ORG "Papers" page, in the 
2002 papers section:

I hope that both papers inspire some discussion.  Authors 
contribute papers to COMM-ORG in the hopes of getting 
comments, so please feel welcomed to contact Peter directly or 
discuss the papers through the list.

I am also experimenting with a new format for these papers.  If you 
run into any problems with the format, or have any aesthetic 
comments, please let me know.

Thanks so much to Peter for contributing his work.
