Editorial Reviews

Review

"The case studies were a revelation. Community organizing is more diverse in style, as well as in content, than in the 1960s. The studies are a virtual encyclopedia of methods, techniques, approaches--and pitfalls."
--Journal of Community Practice

This is a good, cross-cutting book on a phenomenon easy to misunderstand, underestimate, or just plain not notice.
--"Planners Library," American Planning Association

Named an Utne Reader "Pick of the Month"!

By John W. Gastil on March 14, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book is a very helpful read for people interested in deliberative democracy and the global movement for greater public participation and civic engagement. The author has been at the nexus of academics, civic reformers, and process designers, and he knows what he's talking about. He argues persuasively that democracy is changing--and for the better--but that its future hinges on our ability to understand and demand more meaningful forms of public involvement. If you find that interesting--or share that view--this book will be of great help.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book examines the changing relationship between Americans and their government. Citizens want to participate in the nuts and bolts of providing government services. The smallest details of mundane programs have become subject of public debate.
