The culture of volunteerism, of selfless service to your fellow beings, must be an integral part of every person and community. This book brilliantly captures the spirit, essence and practical application of that culture. It provides frameworls and real experiences from the field that can assist universities, civic, institution and others in moving forward their community engagement programmes more vigorously, effectively and deeply. While based primarily on the rich Malaysia experience, the Universiti Sains Malaysia has produced an excellent broad-based and unique resource that will also have universal appeal to anyone anywhere committed to fostering civic responsibility. Dato' (Dr.) Anwar Fazal A Global Civil Society Activist, Recipient of the Right Livelihood Award popularly as the 'Alternative Nobel Prize'
