The Pew Charitable Trusts sought to understand thriving, working-class urban residential neighborhoods through the Neighborhood Preservation Initiative (NPI), a community-building initiative in 10 neighborhoods in nine mid-sized cities. Wright, director of Urban and Metropolitan Studies at the Rockefeller Institute, reports on lessons learned from the NPI about engaging networked community organization in action- oriented strategies for community development. B&w photos are included of various neighborhood building and development projects. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
