This book was assigned for my graduate class. It is a little wordy and not very interesting but all in all a good book to have for class. I am learning from it and I just have to force myself to read through it. It is an easy read and the book came in perfect condition.

As public health problems such as HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, violence, and environmental toxins become an ever greater part of our national landscape, grassroots public health work has become all the more important. This updated and revised edition of a highly praised volume provides meaningful insights into the systems of inequality in the United States—such as race, class, and gender—that impact health. Updated versions of a number of the original chapters, as well as new chapters and appendixes, address areas such as using community organizing to impact on policy; using the arts in community building and organizing; online activism; and the role of cultural humility and systems change in building effective partnerships between local health departments and community residents.

Used this book for a Community program class in public health. Was a great resource for the class. If you are interested in creating community based public health programs, this book does a great job of guiding you through the steps to accurately design a program.

The authors of this book focused their attentions on the value, strength, and creative found in communities. For everyone working in and with communities to improve the public's health-professional and community members alike,this uniquely comprehensive book is the ultimate guide.

We read this book for a grad school class, and it was the best book I read as a grad student. Each chapter is organized into two parts, a theoretical treatment followed by an in-depth case study. Although it's a bit heady, the book is also extremely practical. The field of community building/organizing is obviously practice-oriented, but some solid theory has been needed for at least a generation. Other "macrosociologists," planners, and political economists have tried but fallen short of merging theory with practice in this important endeavor of community action. This book succeeds where others have failed, and it should be required reading for anyone in the community development, public health, or social work fields.

Very detailed, variety of interesting points, examples and research. I would recommend prevention is primary first, before reading this book because it is a bit more advanced. It reads more like a leisure book than a text book which is nice.
