Editorial Reviews

"[A]n excellent overview of how the concept of community has been interpreted and (ab)used by politicians and policymakers...The book takes familiar concepts and methods, weaving them together to build a new framework [and] throws up a number of challenging questions and some illuminating insights...[it] is unreservedly recommended for policy-makers and anyone working in or with communities. It will also be of immense value to students, researchers and academics seeking a comprehensive synthesis."--Alison Gilchrist, Community Development Journal"[G]rounded, authoritative and timely...a crucial contribution to an important policy debate."--John Houghton, Environmental Planning
