Skills in Neighbourhood Work is a practice textbook. It explains the skills, knowledge and techniques needed by community workers and other practitioners to work effectively in and with communities. While the principles and methods it describes have stood the test of time, the political, economic and social changes which have taken place since the book was first published have made a new edition essential. Completely rewritten and updated, the third edition retains all the practical information needed by the student or practitioner but sets it in the contemporary context. It includes a European perspective and views from America and Australia.
