Pragmatics of Community Organization by Bill Lee (4th Edition)

Book Cover

"A superb resource for students and community workers involved in grassroots organizing. By far the best text I have found for my community development course. An ideal text for students. It combines theory and practical information in a way that is both comprehensive and easy to understand. It will be a fine reference long after graduation." -Jane Cruikshank, PhD, Associate Professor, Faculty of Social Work, University of Regina


"This is the kind of book that you want to have on the book shelf for easy reference. It should become tattered and worn over time from frequent use. This is a checkpoint - a guide to almost any community based movement or part of the larger movement. It can keep you on track" - Renee Masching, First Nations Aids Task Force, Halifax

'Embedded in a clear conceptual framework, Pragmatics of Community Organization is a practical, down-to-earth guide for community Practice. This book is particularly valuable because It is a unique integration of (1) a practical "how-to" guide for community-based work; (2) a radical perspective on social justice; and (3) a gentle, non-judgmental plea to keep listening to; reflecting on, and learning from the diverse communities in which we work. For planning students and practitioners who are interested in working with grassroots communities there is no more important book to read and keep on hand for frequent reference."-Barbara Loevinger Rahder, Associate Professor, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University
