The Nature of the Nonprofit Sectorfeatures the most insightful and influential readings on the nature and roles of the nonprofit sector. The book discusses everything from Andrew Carnegie#x19;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. Thorough, topical, and accessible, this is the ideal text for anyone wishing to learn about nonprofit organizations and management. The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to feature the latest scholarship on the nonprofit sector, including new essays that analyze its theory, history, and organization; rationales for its tax-exemption status; 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 issues and provides an overview of sometimes competing points of view.
J. Steven Ott is a professor at the University of Utah. Lisa A. Dicke is an associate professor at the University of North Texas.
