In this second edition of a bestselling book, the authors' unique, holistic and radical perspective on participatory practice has been updated to reflect advances made in the past decade, the impact of neoliberalism and austerity and the challenges of climate change and the pandemic.
Bridging the divide between community development ideas and practice, over half of this innovative book comprises new content with updated features including:
* Reflection questions
* Key points highlighted throughout each chapter
* Glossary of terms
The authors argue that transformative practice begins with everyday stories about people's lives and that practical theory generated from these narratives is the best way to inform both policy and practice.
This long-awaited second edition will be of interest to academics and community-based practitioners working in a range of settings, including health and education.
