A Selected Bibliography on Planned Change and Community Planning Practice: Making Things Happen. Exchange Bibliography No. 224.
Bolton, Charles K.; Lenz, Donald W.
This bibliography is designed for students of planned community change, practitioners concerned with the redefinition of the planning profession, and local citizens involved in the change process. The authors do not consider the bibliography exhaustive, but rather developmental, outlining the application of planned-change theory and method to the practice of community planning. The bibliography has three sections: The Community--Conceptual Background; The Community--Processes for Effecting Change; and The Community--Individuals, Groups, and Organizations. The first section deals primarily with the various meanings of community, and with the framework and theory of creating change in community. The second section is concerned with an examination of the "how to" of community change. Emphasized are processes of community research, organization, and action, and basic individual-community interactions. The third section has three parts: Individuals, Groups, and Organizations. Here, attention is given to the specific human elements of community and their interaction. Within each section and subsection, citations are listed alphabetically by author's name. (Author)
