Practical yet comprehensive in orientation, rooted in practice yet at the same time providing a critical link to key policy issues, this book has struck many practitioners as 'the best book on Canadian CED they have read.' A detailed examination of 10 Canadian development initiatives, ranging from Cape Breton to Vancouver, reflects experience in a variety of sectors: credit unions, labour, the co-ops, government, and an array of community organizations committed to fighting poverty through CED. A summary analysis presses for the policy changes required to foster further initiatives of this nature. Instructive and inspiring reading for students, teachers, practitioners, and policy-makers.
