Also, what do changes in volunteering in the post 1945 period show us about contemporary social consciousness? This book aims to develop a rounded understanding of the phenomenon by contextualising these issues within a wider historical and sociological framework, including the changes in what is regarded as 'political'. It focuses on the significant changes in political consciousness in the post-war period from the Peace Corps and VSO based on people's skills, through to today where there are a host of voluntourism oriented companies offering ubiquitous opportunities for wide range of people, premised upon their aspiration to adopt an ethical lifestyle.
