9781442603660: Community: A Contemporary Analysis of Policies, Programs, and Practices

Community is an elusive yet frequently invoked concept. Terms like community health, community living, community schools, community policing, community development, and community renewal have become part of the contemporary lexicon.



What has led organizations, and particularly Western governments, to take such an interest in community, and why this interest now? What has caused the increasing acceptance of community as the primary vehicle through which a wide variety of government programs and services should be delivered? And what has this shift of focus meant for those living and working in communities?



Using real-life case studies that include affordable housing and environmental and crime-prevention initiatives, Community is the perfect primer for understanding the theoretical and practical elements of contemporary community policies and practices, ideal for those working, or training to work, at the local level.

Review:

Finally, a text I can use in my introduction to community class. Kelly and Caputo have written an accessible book that does not lose the complexity of the concept of community, and does not celebrate community, but situates its role in the context of the transition to neoliberalism. Case studies complement the critical analysis. (Eric Shragge, School of Community and Public Affairs, Concordia University)

This text offers Canadian undergraduate and graduate students a succinct, lucid, and readily accessible account of the effects of neoliberalism on the attempt to utilize 'community' as a solution to so many contemporary Canadian problems. Written at a time when global crises may well augur dramatic change, whether it be further 'responsibilization' or more overt centralization, this is a very timely contribution. In many ways, it is a model text, certainly one to be highly recommended to faculty members for adoption and to students for careful consideration. (Kit Carson, University of Melbourne)
