Community development's social justice principles are under threat from the current resurgence of far-Right politics. The dangerous escalation of economic inequalities calls for new ideas on power and new approaches to practice. Rooted in radical community development's strong theoretical foundation in Freire and Gramsci, the body of knowledge is expanded to make sense of these challenging times, introducing exciting new ideas for those working in this field. Written in an engaging style, linking theory to action using cartoons, international case studies and key concept summaries, the fully updated third edition of this bestselling book offers an inspiring approach to practice for all those committed to social and environmental justice.

"Neoliberalism desperately needs challenging and this important book provides an incisive and compelling account of how it can be done. Essential reading for all those interested in this vital area of theory and practice." Steve Rogowski, Social Worker "Europe currently faces many challenges: poverty, inequality, migration, increased racism, xenophobia and populism, the democratic deficit and the environmental crisis. Ledwith makes sense of these and promotes critically reflective community development practice." Alex Downie, European Community Development Network "A passionate and wide-ranging overview of the events and ideas that have brought us to this moment, and a challenge to community development to change the story." Rebekah Goddard, UK Community Foundations. "With inspiring case studies and provocative questions, this is essential reading for anyone who dreams of creating a more just and equitable society." Rosemary Moreland, University of Ulster.
