I received my PH.D. from the University of Oxford in 1966 and taught for two years at the University of East Anglia in England before joining the sociology department at Duke. I have published books on social movements, religion, leisure, sport and social theory. Currently, I am conducting a number of studies of volunteers, looking at who volunteers, for what and how much, and what effect volunteering has on the volunteer.
