New book celebrates the life of Jockin Arputham (1946 - 2018)
Jockin Arputham, who died in October 2018, was a slum dweller, community organizer and solution-maker of the greatest sort. He was a friend and partner and teacher and rabble-rouser to so many of us in the ACHR and SDI diaspora - and in the global development community. Here is a book that brings together stories and tributes from forty people who worked with him and learned from him over the years and around the world. It was put together with tenderness and affection by the far-flung team of Sheela Patel, Joel Bolnick, David Satterthwaite, Indu Agarwal and Holly Ashley.
