THE GOVERNMENT OF ASSOCIATIONS, SELECTIONS FROM THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES.
GLASER, WILLIAM A., ED.; SILLS, DAVID L., ED.
A COMPILATION OF 47 SELECTIONS FROM BOOKS, JOURNALS, AND RESEARCH REPORTS IN THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, THIS BOOK OF READINGS EITHER ABOUT VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS OR WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR THEM IS ADDRESSED TO LEADERS, BOARD MEMBERS, WORKING VOLUNTEERS, AND STAFF MEMBERS OF VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS AND TO BEHAVIORAL SCIENTISTS AND SOCIAL WORKERS INTERESTED SPECIFICALLY IN VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS. A REPRESENTATIVE SELECTION OF THE RESEARCH LITERATURE AND A WIDE RANGE OF POINTS OF VIEW ARE PRESENTED. AN IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS AND BUSINESS FIRMS--THAT LEADERSHIP IN VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS IS TO A MUCH GREATER EXTENT BASED UPON THE CONSENT OF THE PARTICIPANTS--IS STRESSED. SINCE NOT ENOUGH RESEARCH HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT EXCLUSIVELY ON VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS, SOME SELECTIONS CONCERN OTHER PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS, SUCH AS BUSINESSES, TRADE UNIONS, AND FACTORIES. SECTIONS ARE--THE SOCIAL ORIGINS AND TYPES OF VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS, SOCIAL INFLUENCES UPON THE MEMBERSHIP, THE ASSOCIATIONS' INFLUENCE UPON SOCIETY, VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATIONS IN OTHER SOCIETIES (RURAL JAPAN AND FRANCE), THE NATURE AND EFFECTS OF LEADERSHIP, AND ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE, PROCESSES, COMMUNICATION, DECISION MAKING, GOALS, MEANS, AND CHANGE. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE BEDMINSTER PRESS, INC., VREELAND AVE., TOTOWA, NEW JERSEY 07512. 273 PAGES. (AJ)
