In this new edition of his popular textbook, Nonprofit Organizations: Theory, Management, Policy, Helmut K. Anheier has fully updated, revised and expanded his comprehensive introduction to this field. The text takes on an international and comparative dimensions perspective, detailing the background and concepts behind these organizations and examining relevant theories and central issues.

Anheier covers the full range of nonprofit organizations – service providers, membership organizations, foundations, community groups – in different fields, such as arts and culture, social services and education. He introduces central terms such as philanthropy, charity, community, social entrepreneurship, social investment, public good and civil society, whilst explaining how the field spills over from public management, through nonprofit management and public administration.

The previous edition won the Best Book Award at the American Academy of Management in 2006. Nonprofit Organizations: Theory, Management, Policy is an ideal resource for students on undergraduate and postgraduate courses in both Europe and North America.

About the Author:

Helmut K. Anheier is Professor of Sociology and Dean at the Hertie School of Governance, Germany. He also holds a chair of sociology at Heidelberg University and serves as Academic Director of the Centre for Social Investment. He has previously been professor of Public Policy and Social Welfare at ULCA’s School of Public Affairs and Centennial Professor at the London School of Economics

Review:

Nonprofit Organizations is an invaluable resource for students, scholars, policy makers and practitioners. No other source so effectively conveys complex ideas with such pellucid prose, no other volume so seamlessly integrates a crucial international perspective into this topic -- and no one but Professor Anheier has the experience, overview, and wisdom to produce a volume of this scope and quality.
Professor Paul DiMaggio, Professor of Sociology, Princeton University, USA

This second edition of Helmut Anheier’s highly acclaimed textbook is especially welcome given how rapidly the field of non-profit studies is moving. The important updates – including a number from Professor Anheier’s own work – make this the clear international leader in its field.
Professor Martin Knapp, London School of Economics, UK

The second edition of Nonprofit Organizations should rapidly emerge as the indispensable text for both graduate and undergraduate courses on the organization of the Third (nonprofit/NGO) Sector. I used the first edition successfully for many years since it was the sole multidisciplinary text available, and since its material was so uniformly clearly presented. But now Anheier has prepared an even better version, with updated charts and tables – and with newly expanded material on both philanthropy and civic engagement. This edition is even more teachable and covers much more of what most specialists will consider to be the expanded core of nonprofit organizational life. This is the book on which to base your nonprofit syllabus!
Stanley N. Katz, Lecturer with the rank of Professor, Director, Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University, USA

Helmut Anheier has produced exactly the kind of textbook the growing fields of nonprofit and philanthropic studies need and that only he could have written: comprehensive, grounded in theory and data, with historical and comparative perspectives, and not least of all, useful to practitioners as well as students and scholars. It should become a staple in graduate and professional education throughout the world.
Leslie Lenkowsky, Clinical Professor of Philanthropic Studies, Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University, USA

The new edition of Helmut Anheier’s book, Nonprofit Organizations, will be welcomed by scholars, nonprofit practitioners, and policymakers. The book lucidly examines key management and policy issues facing nonprofit organizations around the world and offers very helpful insights to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofit organizations. This comprehensive book is also very accessible to a wide array of audiences, so it will be a valuable resource for classroom use, researchers, and nonprofit staff and volunteers.
Steven Rathgeb Smith, Executive Director, American Political Science Association
