About this book

Considers the crucial dimensions of personal responsibility, consensus and community and shows how to find a new language to reinvigorate society and life, and develop the resourcefulness to achieve this.

Chris Wright's The Community Manifesto" has much of the feel of Fritz Schumacher's 1960s classic "Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Matter" with oodles of honest-to-goodness common sense, knowledge in detail across a broad spectrum of 'worlds' and an armchair style that convinces without confronting. It is also ideologically very sound from a 'Fourth World' viewpoint with Chris Wright's long-held belief in the "power of community to transform our world" shines through from every page..an intellectual "tour de force." A deceptively easy read..and just the book to slip into." -- Peter Etherden, Fourth World Review
