This book offers a new look at Mexican civil society, through a rigorous quantitative and qualitative analysis of volunteering in Mexico. The findings of this study, with new methodologies specifically tailored to the unique nature of Mexican volunteerism contradict previous studies that considered Mexico's Third Sector one of the smallest and least developed worldwide.
American or European models of studying the Third Sector do not accurately translate to the study of Mexico, and the author of this key volume has developed a new and important model of study. The results of this study will provide key insights about the growing Third Sector in Mexico, including: the concept of volunteering in Mexico, case studies of Non-Profit Organizations in Mexico, findings, Challenges, and Implications of this Study, detailed outline of the Methodology, technological Support for Information Gathering.
The results and methodology of this groundbreaking study will be invaluable not only to researchers studying the Third Sector in Mexico, but those studying other analogous cultures that do not fit into traditional American or European models.
Conceptual Framework for Volunteer Action and Acts of Solidarity.-Analysis of the National Survey on Solidarity and Volunteer Action.

"The authors don t just apply ready-made concepts and research instruments imported from other contexts, but rather investigate, in a bottom-up fashion, the real conceptions of what volunteering is in the eyes of Mexicans....the reader is presented with statistics of volunteering, but also with a deeper understanding of how and why Mexicans volunteer and what it means to volunteer, in their own words. ..Scholars of volunteering have much to learn from the way Butcher and her colleagues conducted their study, and from the original qualitative analyses they applied. ...Those who are interested in understanding Latin American and particularly Mexican civil society will earn interesting insights into different aspects of these societies, including the roles of religion, community, gender and more. ..Those who are interested in philanthropy and civil society in general will enjoy the detailed accounts and the glimpse offered by the authors into the real lives of volunteers and the life histories that brought them to volunteer." (review for the Spanish edition in Voluntas 19:4)
"This book offers its readers a valuable insight into solidarity in Mexico....It could turn out to be the greatest challenge for a society such as ours: to learn how to get organized in order to make citizen participation and volunteer work the best way to achieve the common good." (Margarita Zavala, First Lady of Mexico, President of the Consulting Citizens Council of the National DIF System)
"This study combines quantitative and qualitative analyses to provide an unprecedented window on the ways in which Mexican citizens engage in voluntary action." (L. David Brown, Senior Research Fellow for International Programs at The Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations, Harvard University)
"Scholars of volunteering have much to learn from the way Butcher and her colleagues conducted their study, and from the original qualitative analyses they applied."

"This book is the first to offer a reliable panorama of what Mexican solidarity looks like with firm and trustworthy outlines. Rather than drawing conclusions, it encourages and opens opportunities for more research. It is a book well worth reading and studying." (Jorge Alonso, Professor/ Researcher and Editor of the Desacatos Journal of the Research Center and Superior Studies in Social Anthropology, CIESAS-Occidente, Mexico)
"This pioneering study is an important contribution that leads to a greater understanding of the value of voluntary action and citizen participation as building blocks for a stronger and more dynamic organized civil society." (Manuel Arango, Founder of the Mexican Center for Philanthropy)
