From the reviews:

This book examines volunteering in detail from a civil society perspective, using empirical data garnered from various sources for countries all over the globe. The contributions deal with a broad spectrum of questions, ranging from the diversity, social and cultural determinants and organizational settings of volunteering, to its possible individual, social, and political effects.

"The values of this relatively unique work lies in the many comparisons and analyses based on cross-cultural data." (Social and Behavioral Sciences, 41: 10)

"In summary, this volume is all the more impressive given the difficulty of the subject matter with which it deals. It should be required reading for any scholar interested in the nonprofit sector, volunteering, and the comparative study of civil society more generally." (John Wilson; American Journal of Sociology, 109: 6)

"The Values of Volunteering, presents chapters that ??? advance a vision of volunteering as involving more than a way of providing service to persons in need. ??? A second goal of the work is to ???contribute to the recognition of volunteering as an interesting topic for further social research. To these ends, the chapters are rich and rewarding and have been well crafted to provide a coherent advance of the book??'s argument." (Jon Van Til, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Vol. 34 (2), June, 2005)
