Beneath the national radar, the relationship between citizens and government is undergoing a dramatic shift. More than ever before, citizens are educated, skeptical, and capable of bringing the decision-making process to a sudden halt. Public officials and other leaders are tired of confrontation and desperate for resources. In order to address persistent challenges like education, race relations, crime prevention, land use planning, and economic development, communities have been forced to find new ways for people and public servants to work together. The stories of civic experiments in this book can show us the realpolitik of deliberative democracy and illustrate how the evolution of democracy is already reshaping politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The case studies were a revelation. Community organizing is more diverse in style, as well as in content, than in the 1960s. The studies are a virtual encyclopedia of methods, techniques, approaches--and pitfalls."
--Journal of Community Practice
Named an Utne Reader "Pick of the Month"!
This is a good, cross-cutting book on a phenomenon easy to misunderstand, underestimate, or just plain not notice.
--"Planners Library," American Planning Association
