GUIDE TO COMMUNITY ACTION

Subtitled A Sourcebook for Citizen Volunteers, this book splendidly lives up to its name. Its twofold purpose: to suggest program and project ideas for a community; to acquaint the reader with available sources of aid and how to reach them. Part I deals with effective community organization -- membership, meetings, finance, public relations. Part II deals directly with the service program -- community programs from safety and health to international relations and Americanism are discussed. The ""how"" advice is specific as to procedure and idea suggestions; it is followed up in a second section in each chapter entitled ""Sources of Aid"". This will give the book its special value. Appendices note special days, weeks and months; preliminary procedure; sources of films and film information; a course in effective speech. A fine aid for civic groups on all levels.
