Excellent Resource Nov. 5 2009
By B. McEwan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Nonprofit Sector is an essential resource for anyone studying nonprofit organizations and how they operate. It is a compendium of the latest research on the core aspects of nonprofit organizations -- the things that make them unique in terms of their purpose, structure and tax status. The handbook includes chapters on the various theories for the existence of nonprofit organizations, including the major political, economic and social theories, as well as full discussions of fund raising, voluntarism, governance and other key topics.

I teach a graduate course in the theory and practice of nonprofit management and use this book as one of two main texts.

Comprehensive--Yet Practical Feb. 4 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This volume is meant primarily to be a textbook for master's or Ph.D. level students. Nonprofit theory and cutting edge research is covered by the known academics in the field. The reference section is superb, leading one to further articles to explore an area in more depth. Yet the practioner will also find this book helpful in many ways, trends in funding and volunteering, up-to-date research brought to the practioner's world, etc. Even if you are not a student, if you work in the nonprofit sector you will find this book to be extraordinarily helpful.

Great book, but no TTS Jan. 1 2014
By Samatva - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great textbook, assigned in my Nonprofit Management and Leadership class. Each of the sections are stand-alone - no need to go through the whole book beginning to end.

It starts off with a very detailed look at the history and development of nonprofit organizations, and the explosive growth of the sector in the 20th century. The sections assigned for my class are clear and written by experienced leaders, overall a great overview of the nonprofit sector.

The professor was only assigning a few chapters, which are on reserve as PDFs, but I wanted the added benefit of having the Kindle version - but alas, this book does not have text-to-speech enabled, so I returned it. Also note that it is laid out as the printed book, so does not flow like a regular Kindle book, but that is no serious problem, just a bit of extra zooming and scrolling.

This book was required for almost all of my nonprofit classes. It is very informative in the history as well as other topics. I was always referencing it for some information. I would recommend for any student studying nonprofit.
