For the first time, Routledge offers two foundational community development texts combined for a discounted price.
Beginning with the foundations of community development, An Introduction to Community Development offers a comprehensive and practical approach to planning for communities. Road-tested in the authors’ own teaching, and through the training they provide for practicing planners and community developers, it enables students to begin making connections between academic study and practical know-how from both private and public sector contexts.
Sustainable Communities offers insight on the multiple influences taht facilitate the creation of a local, durable and truly sustainable economy. Citing Burlington, Vermont's remarkable rise to award-winning status, this book explores the balance of community planning, social enterprise development, energy and environment, food systems and cultural well-being.
