This handbook takes voluntary associations as the starting point for making sense of communities. Although the way associations and the organization of local social life are intertwined is one of the oldest approaches to community study the way citizens and residents come together informally to act and solve problems has rarely been a primary focus. There is little direct research or theory dealing with this subject and beginning to correct that deficit is the task of this book. The challenge accepted by this book is important because associations are central to important, developing areas of social theory and social action.
