"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 "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. "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 "In the space of a mere 200 pages a tremendous amount of ground is covered ... Ledwith demonstrates that it is possible to retain faith in a radical past whilst, simultaneously dazzling us with the power and future potential of community development." --Studies in the Education of Adults "This is a very accessible and readable book that is based on a detailed knowledge of statistical research, critical theory and community development experience" --Concept

Övrig information

Margaret Ledwith lives in Lancaster where she is Emeritus Professor of Community Development and Social Justice at the University of Cumbria. She is also a coordinator of the international Collaborative Action Research Network. For many years, she was a grassroots community worker, and it was this experience of working with marginalised communities that forged the foundation of a lifetime commitment to social justice. She has written three books: Participating in Transformation: Towards a working model of community empowerment (1997), Community Development: A critical approach (2005), for which Policy Press have recently awarded her 'bestselling title of all time' and a 'lifetime achievement', and, with Jane Springett, Participatory Practice: Community-based action for transformative change (2009).
