The third sector, or the voluntary, civic sector of society, is taking on increasing prominence in the face of retrenchment, austerity, and decreasing confidence in government. This book is the first to offer an up-close look at the relationship between active citizenship and civil society and how that relates to third-sector activities. Drawing on a wide range of theory and case studies, the book explores questions of social connectedness, changing forms of political engagement, and the increasing complexity of the social and environmental problems that the third sector confronts. It will be invaluable for theorists, scholars, and organizers.
