A comprehensive approach focused on sustainable change Asset Building and Community Development, Fourth Edition examines the promise and limits of community development by showing students and practitioners how asset-based developments can improve the sustainability and quality of life. Authors Gary Paul Green and Anna Haines provide an engaging, thought-provoking, and comprehensive approach to asset building by focusing on the role of different forms of community capital in the development process. Updated throughout, this edition explores how communities are building on their key assets—physical, human, social, financial, environmental, political, and cultural capital— to generate positive change. With a focus on community outcomes, the authors illustrate how development controlled by community-based organizations provides a better match between assets and the needs of the community.

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), Looking Back to Look Forward is a prelude to a longer book. It is framed as a conversation between Cormac Russell, who is a leader in the Asset Based Movement in Europe, and Director of ABCD Europe and Professor John McKnight the Co-Director of the ABCD Institute. This book provides a detailed background to Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), with a particular emphasis on the contributions of the people, such as Illich, Alinsky, Mendelsohn, Miller, Snow, Block and others, who have been most influential in shaping the conceptual framework and practice of this approach. It also provides a deep insight into Professor John McKnight’s (one of the originators, and the most central figure in ABCD alongside Professor Jody Kretzmann) thinking on society and community. It offers a wealth of commentary on the challenges facing society and community, what needs to change, and how we might go about it. This publication is therefore a must read for anybody interested in social policy and community development. It will be of particular interest to those seeking to gain a deep, well informed and rounded understanding of Asset Based Community Development from its beginning to the current day.

But can community-based organizations address these concerns effectively? The editors and contributors to Mobilizing Communities explore how these organizations are responding to these challenges, and how asset-based development efforts can be successful.

Payne has written a comprehensive study of the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a local youth violence prevention project in Riverside, California. We know local governments are accountable for the effective management of tax funds. As such, the proper planning and implementation of long-term youth violence prevention efforts takes on added significance. This project represents the first effort on the part of the City of Riverside, California to implement a preventive model based on social disorganization theory. The basic premise of the model combines long-term and short-term goals. That is, increased social capital for youths and collective efficacy among adults in the community combined with acute intervention and suppression efforts help to mitigate the risks associated with youth violence. It is hoped that this analysis may serve to inform other local governments on the most effective strategy in the prevention of youth violence.

TitleAbstract/titlePurposeThe purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how asset based community development can be used to build inclusive, connected communities that intentionally value the contribution of older citizens.Design/methodology/approachAsset based community development was used as an approach to enable older people to transform their neighbourhood and make them a better place to live for all ages. The paper describes this approach and goes on to illustrate how it has been applied in three neighbourhoods using case studies.FindingsThe case studies show that by using asset based community development, connections can be made between people, associations/clubs, businesses and services, to achieve the aspirations the citizens have for their neighbourhood. The contribution of older citizens to community life is valued and the risk of isolation and loneliness reduced.Originality/valueThe three case studies presented in this paper are unique in that they have applied asset based community development with older people taking on the role of community builders and connectors.
