Mezirow, Jack D.
Designed primarily to help improve the training of Peace Corps personnel, this 1,585 item bibliography seeks to provide students of community development with a classification system that serves as the basis of a selected literature review in each of 20 subject fields. Regional designations include General and Comparative, Africa, Asia (general), Northeast Asia, South Asia (India, Pakistan, other), Southeast Asia (Philippines, other), Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, Near and Middle East, and Oceania. Other regional and world reports are also noted. Social and cultural factors in developing nations are covered, followed by items on operational problems and practices and on specific program areas and technical services (agriculture, health, sanitation, education, social development, social welfare, housing, resettlement, women's and youth programs, recreation, urbanization). Other entries deal with economic development, land tenure and reform, political development, national planning, technical assistance, and community development as a profession.
