New Village Press is a public-benefit publisher specializing in works about community building on the grassroots level. Our books address topics such as urban ecology, community-based arts, restorative justice, green schoolyards and community gardens. New Village crosses boundaries between academic and informal education with titles that engage both professionals and community activists working together to rebuild neighborhoods. Most significantly, our books go beyond abstract policy and present the human story the motivations that stir the soul to make a certain part of the world a better place to live. Authors include neighborhood commons activist Karl Linn, community cultural development scholar Arlene Goldbard, and award-winning cartoonist Keith Knight. New Village Press was recognized as the Best Small Publisher in the East Bay, 2006, by East Bay Express. The Press is the publishing arm of Architects/ Designers/ Planners for Social Responsibility (ADPSR), an educational non-profit organization working since 1982 for peace, environmental protection, social justice and the development of healthy communities.
