Product Description

Review

A must have for the toolkit of every aspiring and practising planner,
community leader, development worker and all others working for real,
affordable progressive change in this new urban millennium. -- PROFESSOR LARS REUTERSWARD, Director of the Global Division, UN-HABITAT

A book of insight and "uncommon sense" that helps us to see and
better understand cities. -- DAVID SATTERTHWAITE, Senior Fellow at the Human Settlements Programme, International Institute for Environment and Development

Hamdi combines learning with practice and actions with thoughts...
His writing and meaningful personal interactions open windows to new ideas
and share a rare insight. -- REUTERS ALERTNET

Hamdi offers in Small Change not just another solution to an old
conundrum but rather a fresh perspective replete with common sense and
original thinking. -- Open House International

Hamdi's modest, entrepreneurial and profoundly personal form of
activism comes as a huge breath of fresh air amidst all the pomp, promises
and pseudo-science of today's development industry.
-- DR HUGO SLIM, Chief Scholar at the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, Geneva, and Trustee of Oxfam GB

About the Author

Born in Afghanistan, and of Iraqi parentage, Nabeel Hamdi qualified as an architect at the Architectural Association in London in 1968. He worked for the Greater London Council between 1969 and 1978, where his award-winning housing projects established his reputation in participatory design and planning. From 1981 to 1990 he was Associate Professor of Housing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he was later awarded a Ford International Career Development Professorship. In 1997 Nabeel won the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour for his work on Community Action Planning, and the Masters course in Development Practice that he founded at Oxford Brookes University in 1992 was awarded the Queen�s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2001. He is currently Professor of Housing and Urban Development at Oxford Brookes University. Nabeel has consulted on participatory action planning and the upgrading of slums in cities to all the major international development agencies, and to charities and NGOs worldwide. He is the author of Housing without Houses (IT Publications, 1995), co-author of Making Micro Plans (IT Publications, 1988) and Action Planning for Cities (John Wiley and Sons, 1997) and editor of the collected volume Educating for Real (IT Publications 1996).

First Sentence
Each academic year we start our sessions with one of those classroom seminars on 'what is development?' - the kind of seminar that's never-ending and impossible to conclude but which gets everyone thinking. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Bought this as I thought it might help with my essay
I thought it would be more about slums and poverty in general but instead it was more of a case study of a particular place and the changes made in that place to improve it.
It's not what I expected it to be but nonetheless it is very interesting if you want to know more about community structure.
I just wish it would describe this more in a general sense also, not just focusing on one particular place.
Also, I found the book to be too factual. It would reference a fact or some data and then not go in depth about what that means/why it is like that. It just jumps from one idea to the next.

This is a great book, written in a charming and easy to understand 'parables' illustrating facets of development practice. Full of intelligent advice and meaningful insights, it is a must have for any one wishing to work in development practice or architecture.
