Description - Towards Understanding Community by Mary Madden

Written in the temporal and political context of the British New Labour Government's ongoing reliance on the word community, academics and activists critically engage here with the range of ways in which contemporary ideas of community are being used and contested. The key focus is on understanding community from action into theory and vice versa.
