Review I would highly recommend this book to any student who is studying communities and groups in society. The book and chapters are structured in a way that students will find it easy to move from one theme to another; to dip into relevant chapters when needed; to gain a good understanding of concepts and how and why they are applied to individuals and communities. The book encompasses both breadth and depth of key concepts and issues. This book will be compulsory reading on our Community Studies degree. --Lesley Groom This book is both insightful and engaging, enriched with diverse and up-to-date readings. Tony Blackshaw lays bare debates surrounding the uses and abuses of key concepts of community studies and breathes new life into community as theory and community studies as method.--Peter Bramham About the Author Tony Blackshaw is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology of Sport & Leisure at Sheffield Hallam University and author of The SAGE Dictionary of Leisure Studies (SAGE, 2009) and Zygmunt Bauman (Routledge ′Key Sociologists′, 2005)
