Reviews

"This book will help shift the focus of future research on neighborhood associations to also address urban realities. Why are successfully organized associations emerging in urban areas, and how should we assess the advantages and disadvantages of these associations? Japan is a country where 80% of the population now lives in urban areas. This book reveals the diverse nature of associations providing social services in urban areas, and we can only hope that future research will incorporate more recently prevalent housing arrangements, such as condominiums and rented homes, which were not covered by the study on which this book is based."
