Social Capital & Community Building

A buzz word of the new Millennium social capital has been claimed as the key element in building urban and rural communities. This book looks beyond the broad claims to the details of social capital creation. Each day some of our interactions with friends, family, workmates or community groups will add to that useful resource. The book draws on empirical work in the Australian context and the international literature to explore theoretically and empirically how everyday activities contribute to our store of social capital, which activities are most beneficial which are not relevant and, most seriously, those which threaten or deplete this resource or co-opt it for private agendas.
