Participatory democracy has become an unshakable norm and its practice is widespread. Nowadays, public professionals and citizens regularly encounter each other in participatory practice to address shared problems. But while the frequency, pace and diversity of their public encounters has increased, communicating in participatory practice remains a challenging, fragile and demanding undertaking that often runs astray. This unique book explores how citizens and public professionals communicate, why this is so difficult and what could lead to more productive conversations. Using timely, original empirical research to make a thorough comparative analysis of cases in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Italy it shows policy makers, practitioners, students and academics the value of communicative capacity.

'Local and Community Driven Development: Moving to Scale in Theory and Practice' provides development practitioners with the historical background and the tools required to successfully scale up local and community driven development (LCDD) to the regional and national levels. LCDD gives control of development decisions and resources to communities and local governments. It involves collaboration between communities, local governments, technical agencies, and the private sector.Since the 1980s, participatory approaches have received new impetus via participatory rural appraisal, the integration of participation in sector programs, decentralization efforts of developing countries, and greater space for civil society and the private sector. This book traces the emergence of the LCDD synthesis from these various strands.'Local and Community Driven Development' provides the theoretical underpinnings for scaling up, guidance on how to adapt the approach to the specific institutional and political settings of different countries, diagnostic tools, and step-by-step instructions to diagnose the national context, adapt policies, and expand programs. It will be a useful guide for rural and urban development practitioners, public administrators, and policy makers who wrestle daily with the problems the book addresses.

Anthropology has two main tasks: to understand what it is to be human and to examine how humanity is manifested differently in the diversity of culture. These tasks have gained new impetus from the extraordinary rise of the digital. This book brings together several key anthropologists working with digital culture to demonstrate just how productive an anthropological approach to the digital has already become. Through a range of case studies from Facebook to Second Life to Google Earth, Digital Anthropology explores how human and digital can be defined in relation to one another, from avatars and disability; cultural differences in how we use social networking sites or practise religion; the practical consequences of the digital for politics, museums, design, space and development to new online world and gaming communities. The book also explores the moral universe of the digital, from new anxieties to open-source ideals. Digital Anthropology reveals how only the intense scrutiny of ethnography can overturn assumptions about the impact of digital culture and reveal its profound consequences for everyday life. Combining the clarity of a textbook with an engaging style which conveys a passion for these new frontiers of enquiry, this book is essential reading for students and scholars of anthropology, media studies, communication studies, cultural studies and sociology.

National Book Award für den besten Roman des Jahres. Ein altes Haus, eine ungesühnte Schuld und die Brüste von Tante Sonja – Louise Erdrich, liebevolle Chronistin der amerikanischen Ureinwohner, führt uns nach North Dakota. Im Zentrum ihres gefeierten Romans steht der 14jährige Joe, der ein brutales Verbrechen an seiner Mutter rächt und dabei zum Mann wird. Im Sommer 1988 wird die Mutter des 14-jährigen Joe Coutts Opfer eines brutalen Verbrechens. Sie schließt sich in ihrem Zimmer ein und verweigert die Aussage. Vater und Sohn wissen nicht, wie sie sie zurück ins Leben holen können. Da sich der Überfall auf der Nahtstelle dreier Territorien ereignet hat, sind drei Behörden mit den Ermittlungen befasst. Selbst Joes Vater sind als Stammesrichter die Hände gebunden. So beschließt Joe, den Gewalttäter selbst zu finden. Mit seinen Freunden Cappy, Angus und Zack unternimmt er teils halsbrecherische, teils urkomische Ermittlungsversuche. Bei seiner aufreizenden Tante und im Kreis katholischer Pfadfinderinnen begegnet er der Liebe – und in alten Akten dem Schlüssel des Verbrechens. Monatelang auf der New-York-Times-Bestsellerliste, ausgezeichnet als bester Roman des Jahres, überhäuft mit Kritiker- und Leserlob: Eine der großen Autorinnen unserer Tage hat ihr brillantestes Buch geschrieben – zart, sehr traurig und sehr lustig. „Eine beeindruckende menschliche Geschichte. Erdrich dringt in den dunkelsten Winkel eines Menschen und so zum Grund der Wahrheit über eine ganze Gemeinschaft vor“ Maria Russo, New York Times Book Review.
