This book explores the philosophical roots of The Working Centre, and examines the centre from a sociological perspective. It includes essays and articles written by Westhues and others.
From the first chapter: By its clasic definition, sociology has room for many kinds of linkage to social action. I have found The Working Centre an especially worthwhile linkage, because it is relatively free of sectarian, partisan, or specialized interests, and can therefore serve the goal of community development in an admirably dialogic, democratic, and holistic way.
