Professor Marc Musick's new book out

Volunteers: A Social Profile

Posted: January 7, 2008
Making use of a broad range of survey information to offer a detailed portrait of the volunteer in America, Volunteers: A Social Profile, co-authored by Marc Musick and John Wilson (Duke University), provides an important resource for everyone who works with volunteers or is interested in their role in contemporary society. Musick and Wilson address issues of volunteer motivation by focusing on individuals' subjective states, their available resources, and the influence of gender and race.

"A much needed book for both scholars and practitioners. It covers a wide range of topics dealing with volunteering...A major contribution." --Virginia Hodgkinson, Center for Voluntary Organizations and Service
