Written by Nabeel Hamdi, the guru of urban participatory development and the master of the art, Small Change brings over three decades of experience and knowledge to bear on the question 'what is practice?'." "Through a narrative style, and using examples from the North and South, the author sheds light on this question and the issues that stem from it - issues relating to political context, the lessons of the 'informal city' and the pursuit of learning that challenges convention. The result is a comprehensive guide to the forms of knowledge, competencies and ways of thinking that are fundamental to skilful practice in urban development."--Jacket." ;
