Product Description: The first new form of community organizing since Saul Alinsky, this book connects the poor to the rest of society. Written in a logical, teachable, and pragmatic style, Consensus Organizing: Building Communities of Mutual Self Interest is a model of social change for the 21st century. Through real examples, author Mike Eichler illustrates how anyone can practice consensus organizing and help the poor, forgotten, and disempowered. Key Features: Makes the experience of consensus organizing come alive: Many illustrative case studies that are both poignant and humorous show readers how key concepts are applied to real-life situations. The author shares his twenty-five years of experience as a community organizer, including the development of a national effort to train young people as consensus organizers in diverse locations such as Las Vegas, New Orleans, and New York City. Demonstrates how consensus organizing can be applied to a variety of settings: The impact of cultural diversity on the consensus-building process is presented around a number of crucial issues such as public education, housing, economic development, health, and crime. This book shows new methods to bring seemingly opposite people together, forming partnerships never before believed possible. Gives readers an opportunity to learn more about themselves: This text shows a way to help in a style that can bring out everyone#65533;s talents and commitment to help others. Unlike most texts, this book acknowledges the emotions whether conflicting or inspiring that lie behind a commitment to community organizing. Reflection questions are included to help students prove to themselves that they have the ability to practice consensus organizing. Intended Audience: This is an ideal core textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Community Organizing, Social Problems, Introduction to Urban Planning, Contemporary Urban Issues, Community Health, and Community Based Policing in the fields of Social Work, Sociology, Planning and Public Administration, Public Health, and Criminal Justice. It is also a practical, straight-forward guide for anyone interested in a new method of creating social change.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.

We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
