Editorial Reviews


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, Professor of Community Development, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK.

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.
