Through a comparative analysis of American and British community development since 1968, this book aims to examine how key political and policy debates social justice and social welfare and how it has been inscribed onto and embodied within the theories and practices of community development in America and Britain. First, through a comparative historical analysis of community development discourses in America and Britain since 1968, this book examines the changing nature of community development and map the competitions and contentions between different conceptions and practices of community development in each country. Second, this book analyses the changing identities of community, practitioner and policy actors over time and in each country. The micropolitics of community development is explored in detail, along with key concepts and framework for identifying and analysing community development discourses across time and national contexts.
