Community development depends on effective social action, and effective social action requires the acquisition of related knowledge and skills. While other works on community development stress the role of economic and political factors, Hamilton's study is unique in its presentation of an educational model for promoting change within the community. The book is grounded on a theoretical base that recognizes the intrinsic motivation of many adults to improve their surroundings and which acknowledges that motivation must be matched with skills and information. At the heart of the study is a description and analysis of an educational community development model that can be modified to suit the needs and philosophies of a range of groups.
