"Creating Sustainable Community Programs is an outstanding presentation of a number of analytical case studies of community development progrms throughout the United States.

"Although engaging people in governance is an important theoretical and practical issue in contemporary public administration, there are a few resources that show how the thorny issues of engagment and participation get worked out in practice. Creating Sustainable Community Programs helps fill this gap. The chapters in this edited volume speak to the lessons learned from community programs that resulted in self-supporting outcomes. The book demonstrates the link between these sustainable community programs and a greater development, planning, and municipal water policy to transportation, environmentatl issues, and solid waste--show that it is possible to move from the traditional to the sustainable in a way that encourages both good governance and the growth of community."-Cheryl Simrel King co-author of Government is Us: Public Administration in an Anti-govenment Era
