Beyond asking ‘What can I do?’, we may ask ‘Why do these things happen?’, ‘What works to change these situations?’ This book is not an analysis of all these ‘ills’ or a guide to the campaigns or organisations that seek to ‘cure’ them. It is not a celebration or an evaluation of interventions. I have spent 40 years directly involved in trying to change some of these situations and teaching and researching with many more people who have been activists and practitioners. The book is a reflection on what should be the underlying principles of community or social development, and how they can be turned into practice.
