"Ledwith has again produced a powerful text for community development practitioners. This time she successfully links the activity with the crises of social injustice and ecological unsustainability in a highly recommendable and significant book." Professor Keith Popple, Visiting Professor at London South Bank University, Bournemouth University and Newman University, Birmingham.
"At a time when the challenges posed by a neoliberal world, a shrinking state and an increasingly polarized society have never been greater, this book gives both the conceptual and practical tools which are so needed by practitioners who are working for a more just world." Dave Beck, The University of Glasgow
