The challenges to managers involved in such work are addressed directly by this book. The book provides material on a key - and neglected - aspect of the government's agenda: how organisations can work effectively in communities and in partnership with local community groups. It brings together contributions on the meaning, principles and application of managing community practice. Its distinctive feature is its focus on the role and skills needed by managers if ambitious regeneration and social inclusion programmes are to work in communities. -- Back cover."@en ;
