have a chapter in a new book Race, Neighborhoods, and the Misuse of Social Capital, edited by James Jennings (published by Palgrave Macmillan). My chapter is called ‘Social Capital and Strong Communities in New Zealand‘. What the blurb says:

This anthology tackles four key issues in race, neighborhoods, and social capital: how is social capital discussed within the contexts of racial inequality, how does this dialogue inform public policy regarding neighborhood revitalization and economic development, and how is utilization of social capital an effective strategy for improving inner city living conditions. These accomplished authors first address the common argument and then provide illustrative analyses, articulating political and economic strategies that ensure basic economic benefits for all communities, regardless of the “stock” of social capital.
