Community Development from the Author: Roland Brake. In this book, international experts discuss community development â?? its historical trends, its present state, its theoretical concepts, as well as its practical implementations in eight European countries â?? Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Romania, Spain, and Sweden. These countries differ a lot with respect to their political, economic, and social culture; their vocational training; and their experiences in community development. Nevertheless, all countries face similar problems in their struggle against social exclusion of specific groups. Models, concepts, and methods of community development, which are based on community inclusion and empowerment, work well in many countries or they are in the process of development and adaptation. In this book, scholars and practitioners lead the way through their world of ideas and their wealth of experience in community development and, thus, support the European and worldwide network of community developers.

An Introduction To Community Development from the Author: Rhonda Phillips. Beginning with the foundations of community development, An Introduction to Community Development offers a comprehensive and practical approach to planning for communities. Road-tested in the authors’ own teaching, and through the training they provide for practicing planners, it enables students to begin making connections between academic study and practical know-how from both private and public sector contexts. An Introduction to Community Development shows how planners can utilize local economic interests and integrate finance and marketing considerations into their strategy. Most importantly, the book is strongly focused on outcomes, encouraging students to ask: what is best practice when it comes to planning for communities, and how do we accurately measure the results of planning practice? This newly revised and updated edition includes: increased coverage of sustainability issues, discussion of localism and its relation to community development, quality of life, community well-being and public health considerations, and content on local food systems. Each chapter provides a range of reading materials for the student, supplemented with text boxes, a chapter outline, keywords, and reference lists, and new skills based exercises at the end of each chapter to help students turn their learning into action, making this the most user-friendly text for community development now available.

Thinking Small from the Author: Daniel Immerwahr. Daniel Immerwahr tells how the United States sought to rescue the world from poverty through small-scale, community-based approaches. He also sounds a warning: such strategies, now again in vogue, have been tried before, alongside grander moderization schemes—with often disastrous consequences as self-help gave way to crushing local oppression.

Tourism And Sustainable Community Development from the Author: Greg Richards. As the tourist industry becomes increasingly important to communities around the world, the need to develop tourism sustainably has also become a primary concern. This collection of international case-studies addresses this crucial issue by asking what local communities can contribute to sustainable tourism, and what sustainability can offer local communities. Individually these investigations present a wealth of original research and source material. Collectively the book illuminates the term 'community', the meaning of which, it is argued, is vital to understanding how sustainable tourism development can be implemented in practice.
