Interest in 'community' has increased in recent years for a variety of reasons, including civil renewal, active citizenship and the increasing diversity of British society. This is highlighted by the increasing governmental emphasis on 'community', leading up to the current ideas of the 'Big Society'. Understanding community is a topical text providing a clear understanding of policy and theory in relation to community. By examining areas of government policy, such as economic development, education, health, housing, and community safety, this book explores the difficulties that communities face in dealing with state power as well as discussing the new concepts of community cohesion, social capital and community capacity building. The author challenges our understanding of community and assesses the strengths and limitations of this understanding. This book is essential for students studying social policy, social work and sociology, and an invaluable resource for policymakers in community development, urban regeneration and allied fields.

Peter Somerville,Paperback, English-language edition,Pub by Policy Press Books Books ~~ Political Science & Government~~ Public Policy ~~ Social Policy Understanding-community~~Peter-Somerville Policy Press In Britain, interest in community has greatly increased in recent years for a variety of reasons: New Labor's emphasis on communitarian ideals, civic renewal, and active citizenship; a growing awareness of the importance of engaging communities in order to ensure that government policies and programs are effective; and the increasing diversity of British society, which is typically described in terms of different 'communities.' At the same time, new concepts have emerged, such as community cohesion, social capital, and community capacity building, which require a clarification of the meaning of community and the purposes that the term is intended to serve. This book offers a fresh and unique perspective of the concept of community and reviews the role of the British government in defining, creating, and shaping community. It examines how far Britain has moved towards 'government through community,' including economic development, education, health, housing, and community safety. Additi
