"Mobilizing Communities is a collection of interesting case studies that are rich in detail about the process of community development in places such as Guatemala, Alabama, and West Chicago. What these wide-ranging places have in common is using assets as the basis for sustainable development. There are relatively few books containing case studies in community development and, in particular that focus on assets, which makes this book unique, new, and valuable to community development academics and practitioners."-John Gruidl, Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs, Western Illinois University
