Full description for The Nonprofit Sector
The second edition of "The Nonprofit Sector" provides a novel, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary survey of nonprofit organizations and their role and function in society, and it also examines the nature of philanthropic behaviours. Each of the 27 all-new, commissioned chapters is written to stand on its own. The contributors, all of whom are prominent scholars in their respective fields, address the history and scope of nonprofit activities in the U.S. and abroad, the relation of nonprofits to the marketplace, government-nonprofit issues, key activities of nonprofits, aspects of giving to and joining nonprofits, and nonprofit mission and governance. Reflecting upon the variety of changes in the rapidly growing world of nonprofits, this new edition examines a wider array of organizations, international issues, social science theories, and insights into philanthropic traditions. For everyone who wishes to have a deeper understanding of the nonprofit sector, this is the essential handbook.
