International Community Organising : Taking Power, Making Change, Paperback / softback Book

International Community Organising : Taking Power, Making Change Paperback / softback

Description

As the Arab Spring continues to work through changes, the Occupy Movement is agitating for change and many are looking for alternatives in the face of global financial and political challenges, community organising offers a realistic way forward for many communities: a tried and tested way of improving people's lives.

This book is the first to explore the diverse history of community organising, telling stories of how it developed, its successes and failures, and the lessons that can be applied today.

It analyses contemporary examples of practice from the USA, UK, India, South Africa, Cambodia and Australia against both wider theoretical frameworks and their ability to contribute to sustainable social change.

It will be useful for a wide range of practitioners, students and researchers engaged in the struggle to develop new ways of doing community.
