Community Development in Action: Putting Freire Into Practice
In a world in which social divisions are widening, not lessening, it is essential for proponents of community development--or of any other practice committed to social justice and sustainability--to understand how power works at every level, from grassroots projects to movements for change. Written with busy practitioners in mind, this exciting and practical book is filled to the brim with useful, practice-oriented ideas for reclaiming community development's critical potential for social change. Building on the work of Paulo Freire, it presents theories in interesting and straightforward ways and will be an everyday reference for giving community development a critical edge.
