520    In this original and collaborative creation, John Brown-
       Childs offers unique insights into some of the central 
       problems facing communities, social movements, and people 
       who desire social change: how does one build a movement 
       that can account for race, class and gender, and yet still
       operate across all of these lines? How can communities 
       sustain themselves in truly social ways? And perhaps most 
       important, how can we take the importance of community 
       into account without forgoing the important distinctions 
       that we all ascribe to ourselves as individuals?Borrowing 
       from the Haudenosaunee, or Iroquois federation, Brown-
       Childs offers a way of thinking about communities as 
       coalitions, ones that account for differences in the very 
       act of coming together. Using the Iroquois as an example 
       of transcommunality in action, he also offers specific 
       outcomes that many people desire-racial justice and peace 
       are two examples-as points of focus around which many 
       disparate groups may organize, without ever subsuming 
       questions of identity as an expense of organizing.In 
       addition to Brown-Childs' own exegesis, twelve scholars 
       and thinkers from all walks of life offer their own 
       responses to his thinking, enriching the book as an 
       illustration and example of transcommunality.In an age of 
       fractured identities and a world that is moving toward a 
       global community, Transcommunality offers a persuasive way
       of imagining the world where community and individual 
       identity may not only coexist, but also depend upon the 
       other to the benefit of both
