Korten, David Getting to the 21st Century: Voluntary Action and the Global Agenda Kumarian Press 1990 It has become evident that the hope for dealing with the global development crisis rests not with the development industry, but with the great social movements of contemporary society including the peace, environment, women, and human rights movements. It rests with people who are driven by a strong social commitment rather than by the budgetary imperatives of huge global bureaucracies.

Kretzmann, John P and John L. McKnight Building Communities from the Inside Out ACTA Publications 1993 This new guide to what the authors call "asset-based community development" summarizes lessons learned by studying successful community-building initiatives in hundreds of neighbourhoods across the United States. It outlines in simple "neighbourhood-freindly" terms what local communities can do to start their own journey down the path of asset-based development: how communities can rediscover and "map" all of their local assets; how they can combine and mobilize these rediscovered strengths to build stronger, more self-reliant and powerful communities; how outsiders in government or the philanthropic sector can contribute sensitively and effectively to the process of asset-based development.

Landry, Nicole The Mean Girl Motive: Negotiating Power and Femininity Fernwood Publishing 2008 This book explores the social context of girls' mean behaviour, examining the intersection between structures of class, race, and gender in the production of girls' aggression. Drawing on girls' first-hand knowledge and experiences, this study provides a candid glimpse into girl culture that raises critical questions about society's lack of knowledge and study in this area. The author notes that prior to the 1980s girls were completely excluded from research on childhood aggression. She argues that society has wrongly blown the issue out of proportion, and engaged in labelling the behavior.

LeBaron, Michelle Bridging Troubled Waters: Conflict Resolution From The Heart Jossey-Bass 2002 This book is about a robust and holistic approach to resolving conflict. It begins where much of the currently accepted theory and practice in the field leaves off. Like a hand pulling back the cutrain from parts of us that have been closeted away, this book reveals ways we can use more of ourselves in addressing conflict. Moving beyond the analytic and intellectual, it situates our efforts at bridging conflict in the very places where conflict is born - relationships. From relationships come connection, meaning, and identity. It is through awareness of connection shared meaning, and respect for identity that conflicts are transformed.

Mayer, Bernard S. Beyond Neutrality Jossey-Bass 2004 In this thought provoking passionately written book, the author dares practitioners to ask the hard questions about alternative dispute resolution. What's wrong with conflict resolution? Why aren't more individuals and organizations usling conflict resolution when they have a problem? Why doesn't the public know more about it? What are the limits of conflict resolution? When does conflict resolution work and when does it not? Offering a committed practitioner's critique of the profession of mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution, the author focuses on the current crisis in the field of conflict resolution and offers a pragmatic response. Mayer urges practitioners to evolve from resolution to engagement and actual advocacy, going beyond neutrality in order to redefine conflict resolution at a level of participation more appropriate to current era. Mayer argues that to be more effective, conflict resolution professionals must become conflict engagment specialists and thereby become a more powerful force changing the way conflict is conducted.

Sullivan, Dennis & Larry Tifft Restorative Justice: Healing the Foundation of our Everyday lives Willow Tree Press 2001 This book lays out all the basic issues of restorative justice but, unlike nearly every other work on restorative justice today, it takes a broader transformative approach. We are concerned with processes of healing but also with transforming the social institutions - the family, the school, the workplace, the neighborhood - that make real health and healing a possibility before and after some harm has been done. In this sense, we see restorative justice as growing out of a needs-based economy, out of sense of justice that recognizes that our success as a healing community will depend upon how needs-oriented our primary social institutions are. The book demonstrates a basic framework: A needs-based approach to justice. This reflects a personal vision of justice because we see that it is not possible to transform justice societally until we begin healing the personal foundations of self. Justice 1-881798-31-3

Zehr, Howard Transcending: Reflection of Crime Victims Good Books 2001 victims of crime; United States; Psychology; case studies; violent crimes; psychological aspects; the heart of this book consists of reflections - words and portraits - of women and men who have undergone our worst nightmares. These survivors of violent crime speak of tragedy and trauma, but they don't stop there. They go on to describe and reflect on their journeys to work through these experiences and to build new lives. While all charaterize the path as painful and ongoing, some say they have found peace. Although some object to being called strong, most have discovered new sources of strength. Even though the coherence of their lives was disrupted or destroyed, many have found new levels of meaning. This is a book of paradoxes and surprises. Given stereotypes of victims, it may not be the book readers expect. Victim Offender Materials 1-56148-333-8
