Review:


"...Rudkin has produced a book that takes seriously the idea of answering the questions of what is community psychology, who are the community psychologists, and what values underlie their work. Her division of the ,field into five guiding principles and four orienting concepts that summarize critical areas of research and theory is masterful. She has managed to incorporate these principles and concepts in an integrated, insightful, and creative manner to provide a broad overview of the field as it exists today... The book is a remarkable achievement. I fully expect it to play a major role in attracting the next generation of students to become community psychologists. Read it and enjoy it!" ? N. Dickon Reppucci ? Director of the Community Psychology Program, University of Virginia (excerpted from the Foreword to this text)




"Overall, this is an excellent book. It was wonderful to see the integration of classic and new theory, methods and content in one text." ? Jennifer Woolard, Georgetown University




"The competitive advantage [of this book] is that its content and flavor are well-grounded in the community psychology ethos. It also does a better job at including issues of diversity." ? Kelly L. Hazel, Community Psychology Graduate Program Coordinator, Metropolitan State University




"I am most pleased to endorse the textbook, Community Psychology: Guiding Principles and Orienting Concepts, by Jennifer Kofkin Rudkin.

This text is one that we have decided to adopt for our undergraduate Community Psychology lecture classes here at Illinois, and I have personally been assigning the text to first year Clinical/Community graduate students as a supplement to their reading of articles and chapters. I have found this text to provide a thoughtful introduction to students at any level who need to quickly grasp the broad scope of community psychology, its values, range of research and action. The book is well written, explains complicated concepts and is a genuine scholarly contribution to the literature. It does more than report the work of others; it asserts a point of view and a conceptual framework while providing many concrete illustrations of community research and action.

Please feel free to quote any or all of this endorsement in advertising. I would be glad to add additional thoughts if that is helpful to you. This is a book that I hope will become widely read.
" ? Julian Rappaport, Professor of Psychology University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
