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.

Volunteersis the first comprehensive look at the organizational behavior of volunteer workers, drawing upon both original research and the existing scholarly work in this field. Author Jone L. Pearce critiques the employee-centered theories of such subfields as organizational design, motivation, organizational commitment, workplace interpersonal influence, leadership, the role of values, and the effects of compensation. She proposes significant additions and modifications based on a detailed empirical analysis of two matching groups of seven organizations each, one volunteer-run and staffed, the other employee staffed. Much of the existing advice to volunteers or those employing them can be misleading or unhelpful. Pearce looks at successful and unsuccessful organizations in areas such as the arts, social services and health care. She discusses the implications of volunteers on general theories of organizational behavior and outlines the practical effects of an understanding of volunteer workers for all organizations employing them. Volunteerswill be valuable to managers, psychologists, and all interested in organizational behavior.

This book spotlights Britain's “citizen army” to show who these volunteers were, why they enlisted, how they were trained—and how they quickly became disillusioned when they found themselves committed not to the supposed glories of conventional battle but instead to a prolonged guerrilla war.

They left Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Michigan, and Stanford to drive ambulances on the French front, and on the killing fields of World War I they learned that war was no place for gentlemen. The tale of the American volunteer ambulance drivers of the First World War is one of gallantry amid gore; manners amid madness. Arlen J. Hansen’s Gentlemen Volunteers brings to life the entire story of the men—and women—who formed the first ambulance corps, and who went on to redefine American culture. Some were to become legends—Ernest Hemingway, e. e. cummings, Malcolm Cowley, and Walt Disney—but all were part of a generation seeking something greater and grander than what they could find at home. The war in France beckoned them, promising glory, romance, and escape. Between 1914 and 1917 (when the United States officially entered the war), they volunteered by the thousands, abandoning college campuses and prep schools across the nation and leaving behind an America determined not to be drawn into a “European war.” What the volunteers found in France was carnage on an unprecedented scale. Here is a spellbinding account of a remarkable time; the legacy of the ambulance drivers of WWI endures to this day.
