Explaining Public Support for the Environmental Movement: A Civic Voluntarism Model

Author

  • Steven E. Barkan

Abstract

The literature on environmentalism includes many more studies of environmental concern than of the public's practical support for the environmental movement. This article develops several categories of predictors of such support from the civic voluntarism model of Verba and associates. Copyright (c) 2004 by the Southwestern Social Science Association.
