This book attempts to open a door upon the enormously difficult possiblity that men may improve themselves.  There is no certainty that this possibility is realizable.  

This book begins with an intimate view of the phenomenon under consideration-human beings in process of self-chosen change.  Specifically, it presents in case-study form the development process in two commuities, a mining county in rural Appalachia and a deteriorating neighborhhod in a northern industrial city.
