Politics, power and community development.
Harms Smith, Linda
This review looks at a book that is a collection of writings forming the first of a series on ‘Rethinking community development’. The series in intended to challenge readers of various disciplines to critically rethink what community development means in theory and practice. The timely series, introduced by this volume, promises to be of great value to theorists and practitioners alike. What has been theorised and practised as community development clearly requires a ‘critical re-evaluation’ so that revitalised understandings may inform more relevant and contextualised approaches. This first book of the series explores Power, politics and community development, as well as their interplay within various internationally situated contexts.
