DEMOCRACY IS YOU by Richard W. Poston


Email this review


A Guide to Citizen Action"" continues the method of community development which was begun with Baker Brownell's Montana study (reported in Small Town Renaissance- 1950) with an intemized program of action through which a community can awaken and revitalize the democratic processes. From the general philosophy back of the program, to the organization of the study and the agenda which provides a background for discussion, this goes on to analyze each topic which forms the basis of research and then improvement; churches; local government; social agencies; economy; community appearance; education; health; recreation; etc. This platform for action is supplemented by chapters on the responsibilities of the secretary, the recorder, the committees, as well as the questionnaires to be used for outlines of research by the various committees in each phase of improvement..... A handbook for civic guidance which will stimulate community action through democratic processes and participation.
