Through the stories of ten organizations working in economically and racially diverse urban neighborhoods (in Chicago and Portland, Oregon) the author explores the strengths and limitations of the five dominant models of community organizing in use today: power-based, community building, civic, women-centered, and transformative. Based on original empirical research, the book combines analysis with lessons for practitioners.
