Synopses & Reviews
Community Organizing and Development
Herbert J. Rubin, Northern Illinois University • Irene S. Rubin, Northern Illinois University
This totally revised edition of Community Organizing and Development more fully examines the broad and ever-changing political and social settings that influence collective actions. In doing so, it describes the infra-structure of social change — the knowledge, personnel, and organizations — that enable change to be successfully accomplished.
New to this edition:
- Chapters have been fully updated and grouped into effective teaching units.
- A more fully developed progressive organizing model is added that explicitly links values to social actions to provide an integrative theme for the text.
- More discussion of the importance of the Web–as an aid for organizing political and confrontational actions, as well guidance in economic and social development projects.
- Increased coverage of the practical details of organizing and development — fund raising, publicity, running an organization, and orchestrating political actions.
- Two new overview chapters, with Chapter 2 presenting descriptive narratives of successful organizing and development work and Chapter 3 examining contrasting models of organizing.
- Expanded coverage of the importance of values and ideology, both for motivating organizing work as well as for understanding the actions of the opposition.
- Numerous examples that show students a wide range of possible careers in social change work.
This revised edition of a well-known and widely used text in community organizing and development fully examines the broad and changing political and social settings that influence actions; while portraying the infra-structure of social change — the knowledge, personnel, and organizations — that enable such work to be successfully accomplished.
The text brings together the practicalities of organizing and development — fund raising, working out news releases, running an organization, orchestrating political actions, academic knowledge — and explains why various approaches work; as well as the values and ideologies that guide what is to be done. It provides the foundations of organizing and development work and then describes how activists — through following either a social confrontation model or an economic and social production approach — can respond to economic and social problems.
