📙 Rediscovering Voluntary Action: The Beat of a Different Drum by Colin Rochester (auth.) — epub download


Volunteering and voluntary organizations have become increasingly important in British social and political life but at a cost. Greater prominence has led to a narrow and distorted view of what voluntary action involves and how it is undertaken. This book reasserts the case for a broader view of voluntarism as a unique set of autonomous activities.
