Theory and Practice of Community Development: A Case Study from the United Kingdom.
Popple, Keith; Quinney, Anne
Journal of the Community Development Society, v33 n1 p71-85 2002
A top-down approach to British community development is rooted in Victorian paternalism, a bottom-up approach in radical action. The case of ACHIEVE (Academic Centre for Health Improvement and Evidence of Effectiveness) shows how the current government's top-down approach is inadequate and potentially exploitive. It emphasizes development and education instead of deeper social change. (Contains 46 references.) (SK)
