Lots of references to other literature, which I always like in a popular science book - and some reasoned sensible critiques of some of the influential books in the area, including the 'broken Britain' stuff. Sort of three books in one - lots of anecdotal descriptive stuff about how many groups there are and how they work (which felt less than essential), a rather better account of what theorists say about groups, and a critique of New Labour ideas about 'community' which was very good and well worth reading.

This is an extremely enjoyable book, well written and handled with considerable sensitivity. In a time of national doom and gloom, this is a splendid antidote and the passion and the sheer variety of the organisations who contributed comes shining through. It makes you proud to be British!

The book contains a through investigation about the history and diversity of associations in the UK, as well as psychological and social factors that are important to understand the behaviour of the individual as a social being
