NGOs in Contemporary Britain : Non-state Actors in Society and Politics since 1945

Edited by Nick Crowson, Edited by Matthew Hilton, Edited by J. McKay

Examining the history of social movements and non-state socio-political action, this volume shows how Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) have proliferated in Britain since 1945, and how they have raised new political agendas, revived associational life, and arguably re-politicized generations disillusioned with the politics of the ballot box.
