Who tends to volunteer and why? What causes attract certain types of volunteers? What motivates people to volunteer? How can volunteers be persuaded to continue their service? Making use of a broad range of survey information to offer a detailed portrait of the volunteer in America, Volunteers provides an important resource for everyone who works with volunteers or is interested in their role in contemporary society. Mark A. Musick and John Wilson address issues of volunteer motivation by focusing on individuals' subjective states, their available resources, and the influence of gender and race. In a section on social context, they reveal how volunteer work is influenced by family relationships and obligations through the impact of schools, churches, and communities. They consider cross-national differences in volunteering and historical trends, and close with consideration of the research on the organization of volunteer work and the consequences of volunteering for the volunteer.

This is the first major book concentrating on the volunteer force to be published for nearly a century. It provides a full view of the social, political, and military aspects of the volunteer movement of the French Wars: the volunteer infantry, yeomanry cavalry and the armed associations in England, Scotland, and Wales from 1794 to 1814 and in some cases beyond. It considers the antecedents of voluntary military forces, and the government planning which led to the formation and development of the volunteers and yeomanry. It shows how the administration of volunteering fitted into the existing system of county administration and central government. It analyses the geographical spread and concentrations of volunteering in relation to the apparent threats from popular radicalism and French invasion. It considers in detail the type of men who joined the volunteers and their motivation for doing so, and those who promoted and organized the corps and the incentives they offeredto recruit them. It shows how the potentially disloyal were identified and excluded. It analyses the social structure of volunteer membership and compares it with other mass organizations. It looks at the ways in which volunteering affected existing social relations, and examines the allegedly democratic aspects of corps' internal organization. It also examines the part volunteers played in festivities and entertainments, and their public image promoted in prints and sermons. The book examines the political affiliations of volunteers and the implications they had for the behaviour and use of the force. It considers criticisms of volunteering, in particular the alleged political and constitutional dangers of an armed population able to challenge the existing order. It shows how volunteering fitted into national defence planning, in particular for preparations against invasion, for evacuation and maintaining internal order. It examines in detail how the volunteers were used inpolicing roles.

The goal of this comprehensive volume is to encourage volunteerism among retired and older people, for their own good and for the good of society. To this end, it documents the physical and psychosocial benefits, and the personal rewards, that derive from a productive volunteer experience. The book also discusses volunteerism in the context of changing concepts of aging and retirement in America, and presents an extensive listing of up-to-date opportunities for prospective volunteers, bringing the idea of volunteer work into the 21st century. Three appendices provide both hard data on the ways people volunteer in America today and specific guidance on learning how to use the Internet in volunteering--including a useful glossary of Internet terms. A list of sources cited, in print and on the Internet, and an index complete the work.
