Overview

Historical context, theoretical grounding, critical issues perspective, and the "how-to" for community development

This collection of work by leading community development scholars presents students with a theoretical and practical introduction to the field. The text progresses seamlessly from a theoretical overview to a historical overview to three approaches to community development (ecological, interactional, and structural-functional), then explores the practice of community development along with technical assistance, action research, evaluation research, and the role of local organizations, local leadership, and coalitions. The book concludes with critical issues, such as rural development, inner-city development, youth in community development, health care, public schools, and sustainable development.

Key features include:

  • New community development intervention models, using examples from recent events to demonstrate the strengths and challenges of such models
  • Community service-learning activities, providing useful examples and case studies of successful service-learning programs in communities
  • A hierarchy of learning activities and exercises within each chapter, ensuring that students learn how to apply concepts to real-world issues
  • Relevant cases of successful community development interventions, giving students examples of 'best practices'
  • Major trends, challenges, and prospects for the future in community development, helping students identify key issues and opportunities
