   schema:reviewBody ""Progressive Community Organizing offers an innovative perspective on the central issues facing progressive community organizers who seek to mobilize with those negatively impacted by local, national, and global economic and social policies and practices. The book suggests a broad interpretation of "community" that includes geographic, transnational and identity perspectives. This interdisciplinary text explores the underpinnings of community organizing and social movement work, grappling with enduring and emergent issues, including self-awareness, issue framing, identity politics, and global justice. Written in an engaging and challenging style, this textbook is ideally suited for use in both undergraduate and graduate courses that explore the theory and practice of community organizing and advocacy in today's global society."--Jacket." ;
