Description

This book discusses how small communities can survive and flourish. Edited by Laurie Brinklow and Ryan Gibson, it celebrates and critiques the dynamics of innovation, governance, and culture in place. Case studies from both sides of the North Atlantic illustrate episodes of "turning around": the evolution, transformation, and visionary strategy that breathe new life into the term "think global, act local."

The book's chapters focus on the strength of local initiatives, the impacts of collective power, and re-envisioning local assets. They explore how various "black horses"--including minorities, small towns, peripheries, Aboriginal communities, those with little money, status, voice, or political leverage--can rise to the occasion and chart livable futures.
