Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
"Even more than in the first edition, which was outstanding, Meredith Minkler distinguishes herself by her rare ability to recognize, collect, and integrate innovative ideas on community, organizing, and health."—Richard A. Couto, author of To Give Their Gifts: Community, Health, and Democracy

"For everyone working in and with communities to improve the public’s health—professionals and community members alike—this uniquely comprehensive guidebook is the definitive resource."—H. Jack Geiger, M.D., Arthur C. Logan Professor Emeritus of Community Medicine, City University of New York Medical School

"This monumental work captures and redraws the lines for ‘thinking outside of the box’ to advance community health and empowerment. It speaks volumes to the significance of collaboration for improving the quality of life for disenfranchised populations and indeed for all of our citizenry."—Ronald L. Braithwaite, Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University

"Everyone preparing for public health research and practice should read this text. I encourage my colleagues to use it in health education planning and evaluation courses."—Rima Rudd, Harvard School of Public Health

As public health problems such as HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, violence, and environmental toxins become an ever greater part of our national landscape, grassroots public health work has become all the more important. This updated and revised edition of a highly praised volume provides meaningful insights into the systems of inequality in the United States—such as race, class, and gender—that impact health. Updated versions of a number of the original chapters, as well as new chapters and appendixes, address areas such as using community organizing to impact on policy; using the arts in community building and organizing; online activism; and the role of cultural humility and systems change in building effective partnerships between local health departments and community residents.
