9780813349602: The Nature of the Nonprofit Sector

The Nature of the Nonprofit Sector is a collection of insightful and influential classic and recent readings on the existence, forms and functions of the nonprofit sector—the sector that sits between the market and government. The book encompasses 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. Each part in the book opens with a framing essay by the editors that provides an overview of the central themes and issues, as well as the sometimes competing points of view.

The third edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to feature new essays that analyze the nonprofit sector's place in our economy and its relationship to our government, and new readings on the economic, community, and civil society theories of the nonprofit sector. The Nature of the Nonprofit Sector is thorough, topical, and above all, accessible to students, making it the ideal text for graduate and upper-division undergraduate nonprofit organizations and management survey courses.

Praise for previous editions

Ott and Dicke should be applauded for their outstanding efforts, which bridge the macro and micro levels of the nonprofit sector for the first time and consequentially enrich the intellectual understanding of the field.”

The editors have done the work for you if you want to understand the theories behind the nonprofit sector, this is the book to read.”

[A] wonderful collection of readings, eminently suitable for introductory courses as well as great starting point for more advanced students and scholars. Theory and practice, national and international, and current and historical perspectives are all embraced in this valuable book.”
