    Description"Making Space for Community Development" offers an account of the key changes to the context and practice of community development since the 1970s, told through the experiences and insights of a group of highly experienced practitioners. The book, intended for those practicing and interested in practicing community development today, focuses on dilemmas arising from the shift to partnership working from a more confrontational model, and the professionalisation of the field. Bringing together a wealth of experience and knowledge from across areas of play-work and youth through to the environment, community enterprise, race equality, immigration and housing, the book raises key questions for contemporary debates and current practice.
