Summary
Effective community participation can lead to social and personal empowerment, economic development, and sociopolitical transformation. But there are obstacles: the power of central bureaucracies, the lack of local skills and organizational experience, social divisions, and the impact of national and transnational structures. Community Power and Grassroots Democracy is a groundbreaking and insighful book that examines a collection of community initiatives from Latin America. The strengths and weaknesses, limits and potential of these initiatives are analyzed, and the new "social-movements" approach is skilfully married with resource-mobilization theory to produce a more inclusive development model. Community Power and Grassroots Democracy is an insightful book that adeptly combines theoretical sophistication with first-hand, "on-the-job" experience. It will interest researchers, scholars, students, and activists in the areas of development studies, political science, community participation, and human rights
