Additional Information: This paper makes an important contribution to our knowledge and understanding of young people's social education through participation in voluntary activities in post-war Britain. It uses hitherto unexplored archival sources and contemporary reports to explore the tensions within youth volunteering at home and overseas and to challenge the received idea of a successful 'youth volunteer boom' in the 1960s. It is included in a new collection on the relationship between the state and the voluntary sector in Britain and the wider British world, bringing together leading scholars from the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Published reviews have commented favourably on the consistently high historical quality across all the chapters and the fresh insights the volume offers.
