Synopsis

McKnight shows how the experts best efforts to rebuild and revitalize communities can actually destroy them and celebrates the ability of neighborhoods to heal from within.. }Amid all the hand-wringing about the loss of community in America these days, here is a book that celebrates the ability of neighborhoods to heal themselves from within. John McKnight shows how competent communities have been invaded and colonized by professionalized servicesoften with devastating results. Overwhelmed by these social services, the spirit of community falters: families collapse, schools fail, violence spreads, and medical systems spiral out of control. Instead of more or better services, the basis for resolving many of Americas social problems is the community capacity of the local citizens. }
