This study began with the observations of author Tracy Collins, a British citizen then residing in the United States, who saw many differences between Britons and Americans in leisure time, work expectations, and community life. Conversations between Collins and American co-author Wanda Rushing, and our readings of historical and contemporary comparisons of life in the two countries, led to this project. This study allowed us to conduct a comparative analysis of associational life and social capital formation in the United States and Great Britain to better understand factors that sustain civic engagement in democratic societies.
