The community development reader : History, themes and issues Paperback / softback


Community development emerged as a recognisable occupational activity in the United Kingdom in the 1950s.

Since then, whilst struggling to remain true to its basic values it has often been manipulated to serve differing policy and political purposes.

This unique Reader traces its changing fortunes through a selection of readings from key writers.

It will be invaluable to those pursuing community development careers, for activists, and for all those teaching, training and practising community development.
