Product Overview

This is a timely book written in the temporal and political context of the British New Labour Government's ongoing reliance on the word "community." Its key focus is on understanding community from action into theory and theory into action. Academics and activists engage critically with the range of ways in which contemporary ideas of community are being used and contested, examining the current theoretical and practical challenges of building and sustaining convincing senses of community in national and trans-national contexts. Contributions are organised into three thematic sections--Locating community, Justice within and between communities and Building health communities.
