Summary

Asset Building and Community Development examines the promise and limits of community development. Authors Gary Paul Green and Anna Haines provide an engaging, thought-provoking, and comprehensive approach to asset building by focusing on the role of different forms of community capital in the development process. Updated throughout, this edition explores how communities are building on their key assets-physical, human, social, financial, environmental, political, and cultural capital.
