9780253220479: Growing Civil Society: From Nonprofit Sector to Third Space (Philanthropic and Nonprofit Studies)

Growing Civil Society investigates the role of voluntary action and nonprofit organization in contemporary America. Key to the book is the concept of "third space," which provides an important tool for the construction of civil society. The third space is not independent from society's major institutions, but exists in dynamic interdependence with them, linking individuals in their home bases of family and community to the larger governmental and economic structures within which all citizens, workers, and consumers learn to find their way in modern society.

From the Publisher:

"Creatively reframing now-familiar concepts of civil society, third sector, and social capital, Van Til builds a compelling argument for a 'third space,' where individuals and organizations come together to reflect and act to create the community and society they need." --Susan Ostrander, Tufts University

"Van Til's book is a valuable and refreshing contribution to the increasingly important question of how, and in what ways, the non-market, non-governmental associations of civil society contribute to social goods and goals." --Mark Warren, Georgetown University

About the Author:

Jon Van Til is Professor of Urban Studies and Community Planning at Rutgers University, Camden. His books include Critical Issues in American Philanthropy: Strengthening Theory and Practice and Mapping the Third Sector: Voluntarism in a Changing Social Economy.
