Why is it important?

Blokland argues that ideas of community as a stable construct (e.g. relationships with kin, friends, social groups or neighbours) are no longer appropriate to our more fluid encounters in a globalizing world. But 'communities' have not died, they have just changed.


A much recommended book to anyone interested in how we continue to make and belong to 'community'.
