The focus of this volume is on new democratic organizations that are helping to restore community life in the United States. Emphasizing the self-regulating power of the local economy, the contributors describe such community development enterprises and propose a social design for going beyond market competition and government regulation as the basis for developing a vital and stable economic base to the community. Academics involved with political theory, economics, social policy and planning as well as practitioners of community organization and development, and city planners and administrators will find this collection of essays to be essential reading.
