Bread upon the Waters: Diplomats and Voluntary Associations

  • Robert J. Moore
Part of the Studies in International Development Research book series (IDRCO)


The sprouting of citizens’ associations is seen in the societies of the West as a sign of national health. The wider their range, the more vital a society is assumed to be. Political parties and their many auxiliaries, naturally, give the polity its nature. But citizens are also involved in a broad network of clubs, societies and interest groups with widely varying purposes. These include pure pleasure, amateur or professional sport, personal enlightenment, communal enrichment, spiritual commitment, institutionalized benevolence, conservation (cultural, historical or naturalistic) as well as pressure groups.
