Abstract:

"David Smith has been at the centre of the movement for social change for 50 years. His long-standing work with countless communities has counteracted the competition, manipulation, misinformation, and the exploitation of enthusiasm that lie behind the "facade" of democratic procedures." "In First Person Plural, he outlines his practical guide to popular democratic education. Here is essential reading for practitioners, policy makers, and activists working for social change in the fields of adult and popular education, community development, rural and urban planning, social services, health care, the environment, women's issues, international development, and peace."--Jacket.
