This book addresses fundamental concepts and dilemmas of community organization practice. It contains reflections and analysis by prominent figures in community organization--scholars, teachers, and activists who have made pioneering and seminal contributions to the field. Fourteen leaders provide reflective narratives and summarize their experience and observations. Their autobiographical accounts of lives and endeavors during the second half of the twentieth century are based on the verities of direct engagement. To broaden and enrich the discussion, professionals from several allied disciplines provide analytic commentaries, reflecting on the reflections.
