Concepts of Community Report
write a short report titled Concepts of Community.
as Graham Day says in the opening sentence of your reading, The Idea of Community;
“According to the authors of a basic dictionary of sociology, the term ‘community’ is ‘one of the most
elusive and vague in sociology and is by now largely without specific meaning'” (Day, 2006: 1
quoting Abercrombie et al, 1984: 44).
Despite this community is, as Day also notes, “one of the most common points of reference” for
those working in professional fields for which you are studying, as well as for “policy makers,
politicians and the general public” (Day, 2006: 1).
