About this title

Synopsis:

In a world in which social divisions are widening not lessening, it is essential for community development, or any other practice committed to social justice and sustainability, to understand how power works at every level, from grassroots projects to movements for change. This exciting and practical book is filled to the brim with useful ideas for busy practitioners. Building on the work of Paulo Freire, theories are presented in interesting and straightforward ways to provide an everyday reference for practice. Contained in these pages is all you need to give your practice a critical edge!

Review:

"At a time when the challenges posed by a neoliberal world, a shrinking state and an increasingly polarized society have never been greater, this book gives both the conceptual and practical tools which are so needed by practitioners who are working for a more just world."
--Dave Beck, University of Glasgow

"Ledwith has again produced a powerful text for community development practitioners. This time she successfully links the activity with the crises of social injustice and ecological unsustainability in a highly recommendable and significant book."
--Keith Popple, visiting professor at London South Bank University, Bournemouth University, and Newman University, Birmingham
