This updated and revised edition of a highly praised volume provides meaningful insights into the systems of inequality in the United Statesa€”such as race, class, and gendera€”that impact health. Updated versions of a number of the original chapters, as well as new chapters and appendixes, address areas such as using community organizing to impact on 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.aquot;An important contribution to expanding the community organizing knowledge and skills base of students and practitioners in public health, health education, social work, and related disciplinesaquot;.
