Product description

Review

The history of UK community development is littered with the state's attempts to co-opt it to promote its own interests, however unfair and divisive. This excellent, elegant and easily digestible guide, written by two leading experts, cuts through the mystique to show precisely what community development should and should not be about. Gary Craig, Professor of Community Development and Social Justice, Durham University, UK.

This short guide is a handy reference and a bargain, and an attractive and cleanly designed pocket book. It will be required reading for students. --James Derounian "Voluntary Sector Review ""

It s an extremely useful publication, which presents some refreshingly straightforward observations, whilst acknowledging the complexity of the politics and the practice. I will recommend it to students. --Mae Shaw, Institute of Education, University of Edinburgh"

A great resource so well written and informative. --Sarah Banks, Durham University"

Essential reading for practitioners as well as students concerned with community development. The inclusion of theoretical and ethical issues is particularly welcome, alongside the implications for practice. --Marjorie Mayo, Goldsmiths, University of London"
