Government Works: Profiles of People Making a Difference

Published Sunday, 1 January 1995

Government Works  was published in 1995 by Miles River Press, Alexandria, VA. The book included eighteen case studies of public work activity in various setting across the United States that had utilized participatory approaches in their communities organizations and demonstrated the successes they achieved by doing so.  Since then, of course, things have changed for these groups.  The book itself is out of print.  As General Editor, I have captured a synopsis of the key lessons that were distilled from these cases.  A list of the titles, the name of the case and the authors appear at the end.
