9780205408139: Community Organizing and Development (4th Edition)

This revised edition of a well-known and widely used text in community organizing and development fully examines the broad and changing political and social settings that influence actions; while portraying the infra-structure of social change -- the knowledge, personnel, and organizations -- that enable such work to be successfully accomplished.  

 

The text brings together the practicalities of  organizing and development -- fund raising, working out news releases, running an organization, orchestrating political actions, academic knowledge -- and explains why various approaches work; as well as the values and ideologies that guide what is to be done.  It provides the foundations of organizing and development work and then describes how activists -- through following either a social confrontation model or an economic and social production approach -- can respond to economic and social problems.

Fourth Edition

Overview

This totally revised edition of Community Organizing and Development more fully examines the broad and ever-changing political and social settings that influence collective actions.  In doing so, it describes the infra-structure of social change -- the knowledge, personnel, and organizations -- that enable change to be successfully accomplished.  

 

New to this edition:

  • Chapters have been fully updated and grouped into effective teaching units.
  • A more fully developed progressive organizing model is added that explicitly links values to social actions to provide an integrative theme for the text.
  • More  discussion of the importance of the Web–as an aid for organizing political and confrontational actions, as well guidance in economic and social development projects.
  • Increased coverage of the practical details of organizing and development -- fund raising, publicity, running an organization, and orchestrating political actions.  
  • Two new overview chapters, with Chapter 2 presenting descriptive narratives of successful organizing and development work and Chapter 3 examining contrasting models of organizing. 
  • Expanded coverage of the importance of values and ideology, both for motivating organizing work as well as for understanding the actions of the opposition.
  • Numerous examples that show students a wide range of possible careers in social change work.
