Community development finds itself in times of unprecedented political, social and economic change, locally and globally, at the same time as divisions between poverty and privilege widen. Building practical approaches to theory and theoretical approaches to practice, this updated and expanded second edition of a bestselling text develops critiques of the changing context and identifies challenges faced by community development both at community level and as a collective force for a more just, equal and sustainable future. Featuring a range of different models of community development and illustrative stories from practitioners in the field, the new edition will be essential reading for practitioners, students and educators involved in community development, youth and community work, social work, health and education.

Recensioner i media

"..Ledwith..makes a powerful case for recognising the potential of community strategies contributing to a moe just and sustainable world." Steve Rogowski in Professional Social Work "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) and, with Jane Springett, Participatory Practice: Community-based action for transformative change (2009).
