"As Eversole points out, working in true partnership with communities is never easy, but absolutely necessary to building place-based and grassroots routes to meaningful development out of poverty, injustice and environmental challenges. Here undoubtedly is a book which shows how it might be achieved through reflexive community development approaches, avoiding a range of pitfalls and always keeping the broader development issues that shape local possibilities in mind." – Community Development Journal, Mick Carpenter, University of Warwick, UK"Eversole does a very good job of summarising a whole lot of knowledge about practice and the experience of doing community development in a way that informs theory. The bases are well and truly covered, with scholarship, style and substance. The book is highly readable, highly informative, and highly recommended." - Australasian Journal of Regional Studies, Paul Collits, Australia
