Distant partners: community change through Project Renewal
Offers an inside look at two communities, half a world apart, who became partners. One needed aid and the other had the means to help; the book chronicles their relationship in all its complexities, pitfalls, successes and failures. This unique documentary provides a day-by-day, blow-by-blow record of community development in practice. It is presented in full and analyzed by the two authors, one of whom was the community worker while the other was a member of the Croydon committee which was responsible for implementing the agreement.
