"This text provides practical insight and examples not available in other texts" —Desna Wallin, University of Georgia

The Second Edition of Asset Building and Community Development examines the promise and limits of community development. Authors Gary Paul Green and Anna Haines provide an engaging, thought-provoking, and comprehensive approach to asset building by focusing on the role of different forms of community capital in the development process. Updated throughout, this edition explores how communities are building on their key assets—physical, human, social, financial, environmental, political, and cultural capital.

New to the Second Edition

  • Provides a more in-depth discussion of the role of assets in local development: Students are able to make stronger connections between the theory and practice of community development.
  • Presents a broader treatment of the community development field: Community-based organizations are explored, including faith-based organizations, youth-oriented organizations, and neighborhood associations.
  • Traces the history of community development: Chapters on cultural and political capital have been added.
  • Offers updated resources for students and practitioners: In addition to exercises and questions, each chapter concludes with case studies, additional references, Web sites, and videos.

Intended Audience

This is an ideal core textbook for undergraduate courses such as Community Development, Community Planning, and Urban Sociology in departments of sociology, urban and regional planning, political science, economics, urban studies, and geography.
