Politics, Power and Community Development, the first book in a new series, Rethinking Community Development, offers unprecedented critical reflections on policy and practice relating to community development in the United States, Taiwan, Australia, India, South Africa, Germany, Ecuador, Peru, and other nations. Addressing the global dominance of neoliberalism, the contributors consider the extent to which practitioners, activists, and policy makers can challenge, critique, or resist its influence.
