The book provides a thought-provoking, interdisciplinary overview of the community development field. It explores the history of the community development movement in the United States and in international settings. Using an asset-based approach that considers human, physical, social, financial, and environmental capital, it demonstrates how local organizations are better able to meet community needs than are governmental programmes or market strategies. In addition to exercises and questions, each chapter concludes with case studies, additional references, Web sites and videos.
