Communities are basic social units that provide contexts in which people live together to their mutual benefit. This book defines exactly what prosocial communities are, identifying their elements and relevant interrelationships, and reviewing the available evidence in support of those conclusions. This work shows why a prosocial community is essential to the accomplishment of the goals of community psychology and related fields, and offers advice on how to create such communities.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Developing Prosocial Communities Across Cultures dares to take a step toward the daunting task of repairing communities broken down by `antisocial' ... attitudes and behaviors. ... the beauty of this work is in its groundbreaking consideration of the complexities of individuals and their behaviors, integrated within social, economic, and political systems. ... This is an important work for students of social capital, social psychology, and community-based organizations seeking the benefits but difficulties of collective change in the form of risk reduction or community problem solving." (Tanya Telfair Sharpe, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (17), April, 2008)
