Religion as Social Capital : Producing the Common Good Paperback / softback

Edited by Corwin E. Smidt


While Robert Putnam's Bowling Alone (2000) highlighted the notion of volunteerism, little attention has been paid to religion's role in generating social capitalaan ironic omission since religion constitutes the most common form of voluntary association in America today.

Featuring essays by prominent social scientists, this is the first book-length, systematic examination of the relationship between religion and social capital and what effects religious social capital has on democratic life in the United States.
