Dave Clements, Donald Alastair, Martin Earnshaw, Austin Williams, “The Future of Community: Reports of a Death Greatly Exaggerated”

'The Future of Community is a much-needed challenge to the complacent and flabby orthodoxies currently dominating the debate. It asks all the right questions: What are communities? What's so great about them? How do they really thrive? How much can politics, architecture, technology or voluntary work destroy or help sustain them? What are the unintended consequences of well-intentioned but misguided attempts to bind society more closely? By asking these questions and often suggesting compelling answers, this book will lift the communities debate to another level.' Julian Baggini, author of Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind'This powerful book is an alternative to the tradition of swansongs to lost communities. It shows that official and semi-official 'community creators' can only construct fragile pretend communities that often reveal their deep distrust of citizens. It argues that, if ordinary people are left alone by those who think they know what's best for them, the possibilities of human co-operation and the building of new communities are greater than ever.' Professor Dennis Hayes, Oxford Brookes University, co-author of Basildon: The Mood of the Nation
