Summary
"Brenton D. Faber's account of an academic consultant's journey through banks, ghost towns, cemeteries, schools, and political campaigns explores the tenuous relationships between cultural narratives and organizational change." "Blending Faber's firsthand experiences in the study and implementation of change with theoretical discussions of identity, agency, structure, and resistance within contexts of change, Community Action and Organizational Change is among the first such communications studies to profile a scholar who is also a full participant in the projects. Drawing on theories of Michael Foucault, Anthony Giddens, and Pierre Bourdieu, Faber notes that in contexts of change, the usual oppositions between structure and agency, complicity and resistance, even fiction and nonfiction no longer hold. Instead, change takes place in the realm of narrative, in the stories people tell." "Featuring six illustrations, Faber's unique study demonstrates in both style and substance how stories work as agents of change."--BOOK JACKET
