Abstract : The achievement of civil defense objectives requires the investigation of large-scale social change by means of social action. Social action involves the process and strategy by which resources are found, organized and utilized in order to accomplish predetermined goals. One objective of the report was to emphasize the importance of territoriality as a setting for social action and within this context to discuss problems of coordination between systems and subsystems. A framework was developed and discussed which focused upon social action processes in area-based civil defense programs. (Author)
