'A rich and wide-ranging book, containing much practice wisdom within a strong theoretical framework, which will enrich the practice of community development workers, educators, and activists. It provides stimulating challenges both for students and for experienced practitioners. This book represents a major contribution to the field, and an important corrective to uncritical, unreflective and top-down practice.' Jim Ife, Emeritus Professor, Curtin University, Australia 'Learning and Mobilising for Community Development is a timely book. ... This book is an important reminder, after what feels like years of absence from much of the literature on adult and community education, that there is continuing and developing theory and practice in the radical traditions of learning. And surely, in the current global political and economic climate, the editors' early plea is a timely and urgent message for community workers and educators alike: hope is not enough, community development needs to build collective organizational strength.'
