Addams, Day, and Dewey: The Emergence of Community Service in American Culture.
Morton, Keith; Saltmarsh, John
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v4 p137-49 Fall 1997
Chronicles the emergence of community service in the United States, beginning with the turn-of-the-century collision of capitalism and democracy which generated a crisis of community and profound rethinking of the meaning and practice of charity. Three service "paths" are identified: nonprofit human services organizations; active citizenship supported by democratic education; and creation of alternative communities rejecting capitalist and democratic values.
