Christine Milligan is associate dean in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and a senior lecturer in Health Research at Lancaster University, UK.Review:
"... extremely comprehensive and useful, with a wide range of topics and excellent examples of research by leading scholars. Landscapes of voluntarism would be of great interest to anyone involved in social policy, sociology and health, and probably other areas I haven't thought of!" Volunteering England "This is a fascinating book...." Journal of Social Policy "This impressive volume brings together a diverse range of contributions around the central theme of voluntarism ... a valuable and thought-provoking reference work for policy-makers and other end-users as well as for academic researchers from far beyond that discipline." European Journal of Social Security "Stimulating and informative; this book deals with a broad range of issues (from governance to volunteering) and so provides the reader with an remarkable view of the 'landscape of voluntarism'. There is a wealth of excellent, informed research and this will provide inspiration for students, academics, researchers, practitioners and policy makers alike." Dr Clare Fisher, Head of Department, Voluntary Sector Studies, University of Wales, Lampeter
