Building Communities from the Inside Out: љA Path Toward Finding And Mobilizing a Community's Assets
John P. Kretzmann" љ John L. McKnight"

From the Publisher
Building Communities from the Inside Out is a new guide to "asset--based community development." Authors John Kretzmann and Jhon Mcknight summarize lessons learned by studying successful community--building initiatives in hundreds of neighborhoods across the United States. The book outlines in simple,"neighborhood--friendly" terms what local communities can do to start their own journey down the path of asset--based development:

  • How communities can rediscover and "map"all of their assets;
  • How they can combine and mobilize these rediscovered strenghts to build stronger, more self--reliant and powerful communities;
  • How "outsiders" in goverment or the philanthropic sector can contribute sensitively and effectively to the process of asset--based development.

This guide will be helpful to local community leaders, leaders of local associations and institutions, goverment officials, and leaders in the philanthrophic and business communities who wish to support effective community--building strategies.

Building Community in Schools љ
Thomas J. Sergiovanni"

Synopsis
In this book for educational leaders, teachers and professors, Sergiovanni argues that creating a successful school requires a "commitment of the heart and mind." To capture that commitment, schools need to instill a vital sense of community whereby students, teachers, administrators and parents can join in a common purpose. Using case studies to illustrate his point, Sergiovanni shows how important it is to shift the focus away from schools as organizations based on contracts and rewards to school as communities bound by moral commitment, trust and shared goals.

From the Publisher
Both in and out of schools, people are experiencing a loss of community. In this book, Thomas J. Sergiovanni explains why a sense of community is so vital to the success of any school and shows teachers, parents, and administrators what they can do to rebuild it. Filled with case studies and other school examples, Building Community in Schools provides the necessary intellectual framework for understanding the need to create communities that are inclusive, meaningful, and democratic.

From Booknews љ
Sergiovanni (education and administration, Trinity University) explains why a sense of community is vital to the success of any school and shows teachers, parents, and administrators what they can do to create school communities that are inclusive, meaningful, and democratic. He describes case studies and examples of schools that have successfully reinvented themselves in order to establish a sense of community as the foundation for all curriculum and instruction decisions.

Poor Richard's Building Online Communities: љCreate a Web Community for Your Business, Club, Assocation, or Family
Margaret Levine Young" љ John R. Levine"

Synopsis
On-line communities work for the same reasons traditional communities work-because of the relationships members form, the information they gather, and the entertainment they view. All provide immediate value and comfort. Poor Richard's Building Online Communities shows how anyone with Internet access can create an on-line community and describes the many advantages. For business, Web communities provide tightly targeted audiences for higher ad rates, more efficient merchandising, excellent word-of-mouth publicity, and customer loyalty. On-line communities can also be used to promote a special interest group or help an organization communicate with its members.

This book explains how to create a place on the Web where customers, members, or friends can post announcements, view photos, have discussions, make recommendations, post events, share thoughts, and meet others with similar interests or questions. Such communities are perfect for Scout groups, professional associations, sports clubs, schools, fraternities and sororities, families spread around the globe, and any other group of two or more people who want to share information and experiences.
