Summary

This is the long-awaited revision of a well-known and widely used text in community organizing. The text provides a comprehensive introduction to the wide variety of approaches that guide social change, social activism, and community building work. Community Organizing and Development links various theories of organizing to the techniques and tactics of practice. It is vividly illustrated by dozens of real-life practice examples. It balances descriptions of protest actions and visible projects with the behind-the-scenes routines that make such work possible. The text describes and illustrates the skills and organizational techniques needed to undertake successful community projects, such as converting a former crack house into safe, clean, affordable housing.
