Community Organization and Development

From Its History Towards a Model for the Future

This book traces the history of community development and organizing as it evolved separately in Britain and the United States, showing how the social and political situations in each country determined the shapes and directions it took. As changes in the demographics and political structures of developed economies have increased the need, and potential, for effective community organizing, this comprehensive history will help us understand how it has worked in the past, and how national policy and local development can be combined for maximum effect.
