Posted by on June 8, 2009

The Community Development Reader
Edited by James DeFilippis and Susan Saegert

The Community Development Reader is the first comprehensive reader addressing community development. Community development has become a significant component of urban political economies in the past thirty years. This Reader is an ambitious volume bringing together history, theory and power dynamics. It does not just promote the model of community development but also addresses the messiness of community development.  The volume includes sections on: History and Future of Community Development; Community Development Institutions and Practice Understanding; Building and Organizing Community; and Theoretical Conceptions and Debates.
