Civilizations fail when they become trapped in a way of looking at the world that no longer works. For many, globalization is pushing us to the edge of disaster - an onward march of blinkered vision, encouraging passivity, moral blindness and a culture of dependency. "A Community Manifesto" is an elegantly written polemic offering a new way of looking at our social, cultural and economic realities. Tackling the crucial dimensions of personal responsibility, consensus and community, it shows how we can find a new language through which we can reinvigorate our individual and social lives, developing the resourcefulness we need but which proves so difficult to cultivate. The vision it presents is persuasive and very timely - only by building community can human society evolve and progress.

Chris Wright's "The Community Manifesto" has much of the feel of Fritz Schumacher's 1960s classic "Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Matter" with oodles of honest-to-goodness common sense, knowledge in detail across a broad spectrum of 'worlds' and an armchair style that convinces without confronting. It is also ideologically very sound from a 'Fourth World' viewpoint with Chris Wright's long-held belief in the "power of community to transform our world" shines through from every page..an intellectual "tour de force." A deceptively easy read..and just the book to slip into." -- Peter Etherden, Fourth World Review
