Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As public health problems such as HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, violence, and environmental toxins become an ever greater part of our national landscape, grassroots public health work has become all the more important. This updated and revised edition of a highly praised volume provides meaningful insights into the systems of inequality in the United States--such as race, class, and gender--that impact health. The book includes timely and powerful case studies of lessons learned and challenges faced in community building and organizing. Several more theoretical essays offer conceptual tools for creating and implementing strategies for community-based approaches to public health. At a time of unprecedented challenges and opportunities for agencies, outside funders, and policy makers, Community Organizing and Community Building for Heath provides the tools for students and professionals who are working to build healthier communities. In its second edition, this classroom favorite includes updated versions of a number of the original chapters, as well as new chapters and appendixes in areas such as using community organizing to influence policy; using the arts in community building and organizing; online activism; and the role of cultural humility and systems change in building effective partnerships between local health departments and community residents.

Book News Annotation:

The revised edition of Minkler's text on grass-roots public health work provides insights into systems of inequality in the US that have public-health consequences, such as race, class, and gender. Minkler (health and social behavior, U. of California, Berkeley) chose chapters that address areas including the use of community organizing to influence policy; use of the arts in community building and organizing; online activism; and the role of cultural humility and systems change in building effective partnerships between local health departments and community residents. The intended audience is professionals in fields such as health education that lie at the interface of health systems and communities.
