Living Community

Living Community

by Dave Andrews
We all have visions of the ideal community where mutual acceptance, respect, and justice guide our actions and relationships. But this heart of community renewal has almost become lost in a complex professional superstructure, to the point of discouraging many who would like to get involved. Living Community provides a beacon of hope and practical guidance for the aspiring and struggling community worker. This simple introductory course spells out the principles and the practices involved in building those better communities. It has been written for use by individuals or study groups, in many diverse settings: in the community, at college, or university. It will be invaluable as a guide for those new to the field, as well as for already experienced fieldworkers. The book offers a searching analysis of the isolation that plagues society, and provides a critical to-do-list of issues that community workers will face, with practical advice on breaking down the barriers and building bridges. It considers the vocational, ethical, cultural and legal frameworks of community work, and outlines the skills required to work for change in the local community: researching, communicating, planning, project submission, and others.
