Community Volunteers in Japan: Everyday Stories of Social Change

Synopsis

This book, based on extensive original research, tells the stories of community volunteers who make social change through their everyday acts. It discusses their experiences in children's activities, parent-teachers associations, juvenile delinquency prevention campaigns, and care of the elderly. It explores their conflicts and their motivations, and argues that personal decisions to volunteer and acts of volunteering, besides being personal choices, are also productive of larger discussions of the needs and directions of Japanese society.
