“Involving local people actively in the transformation of their own reality is as relevant today as it ever was.”— Training for Transformation, Vol. 4
This volume of Training for Transformation focuses on the environment, gender and development, ethnic and racial conflict, intercultural understanding, and building participatory governance. The authors draw on their direct experience of working on community development programs in South Africa and in the United States., and each section contains simulations, real life stories, statistics, news articles, and poetry and drama from local communities.
Extensively field-tested with groups in different countries, this is a valuable addition to the classic three-volume set. The text is ideal for adult education, social workers, community organizers, churches, trade unions, and all those concerned with creating social justice.
