Margaret Ledwith's new edition of Community Development reminds us of the importance of maintaining a critical reflexive perspective when undertaking action in a community....Ledwith's model for practice offers hope and optimism in dealing with the challenges that a neo-liberal society poses for marginalised and disenfranchised people. Lena Dominelli, University of Durham
Margaret Ledwith presents a radical vision of community development in which the analyses of power that lead to domination and discrimination, present in every community, provide the basis of transforming practice.The revolutionary pedagogy of Paulo Freire and Gramsci's concept of hegemony work together with feminism and anti-racism to unite theory and practice in ways which develop critical thinking as the basis of empowering communities. Javier Segura del Pozo, Public Health Medical Practitioner, Madrid.
Government is, once again, attempting to hijack community development with its own top-down solutions to social division. A truly critical view of what community development is and is not is thus most welcome. Margaret Ledwith's revised book builds most impressively on its original. Gary Craig, Professor of Community Development and Social Justice, University of Durham
