The Nature of the Nonprofit Sector features the most insightful and influential readings on the nature, place, and roles of the nonprofit sector—the sector that sits between the market and government. This book discusses everything from Andrew Carnegie’s turn-of-the-century philosophy of philanthropy to the most recent writings by current scholars and practitioners from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines.The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated with the latest scholarship on the nonprofit sector, including new essays that analyze its theory, history, and organization; its tax-exemption status; and its blending with government sectors. Additional new selections explore social theories of nonprofit organizations and theories of giving and philanthropy. Also new to this edition is a section on the international nonprofit sector. Each part opens with a framing essay that identifies central themes and issues and provides an overview of sometimes competing points of view.Thorough, topical, and accessible to students, this is the ideal text for courses on nonprofit organizations and management.
