  10. Progressive Community Organizing Reflective Practice in a Globalizing World, 2nd Edition

    "The first edition of Progressive Community Organizing was a splendid and relatively unique community organizing text in a field that has sparked a great deal of recent interest. The second edition, significantly revised and expanded, is even better. My favorite aspects are how Loretta Pyles grounds the study of community-organization practice in the ideas and contexts that shape contemporary efforts. Progressive Community Organizing is especially strong on the importance of theory to practice, an area most books minimize or ignore. This is a highly accessible and informative read, chock full of valuable insights from an experienced and gifted teacher and practitioner." —Robert Fisher, PhD, professor and chair of community organization at the University of Connecticut School of Social Work, and author of Let the People Decide

    "Pyles’s work is a critical text for students, educators, and practitioners of transformative community organizing. Drawing upon theory and practice, Pyles details the multiple levels—individual, organizational and societal—at which transformation must occur to build movements for lasting comprehensive change." —Laura J. Wernick, PhD, assistant professor at the Fordham University School of Social Service
