Item description for Acts of Compassion: Caring for Others and Helping Ourselves by Robert Wuthnow...
Overview "Vigorously argued, beautifully written, drawing intelligently on evidence from surveys and from some extraordinary interviews, Acts of Compassion sheds a great deal of light on a central area of American life, namely volunteerism and charity. This is a book for the serious scholar and the concerned layperson alike".--Robert N. Bellah, author of Habits of the Heart.
Robert Wuthnow finds that those who are most involved in acts of compassion are no less individualistic than anyone else--and that those who are the most intensely individualistic are no less involved in caring for others.
