9780813349619: Understanding Nonprofit Organizations: Governance, Leadership, and Management

Understanding Nonprofit Organizations examines the most important issues that face today's leaders and managers of nonprofit organizations through the writing of scholars, consultants, and practicing executives. It focuses on governing, leading, and managing nonprofit organizations and how such organizations differ from both the public and private sectors. Each part opens with a framing essay that identifies the central themes and issues and summarizes the significance of the contribution that each piece makes to the development of knowledge in the field.

Completely revised and updated, the third edition includes new articles on legal frameworks, philanthropy, managing volunteers and accountability, as well as an original essay on capacity building by Michele Cole. In addition, the third edition now features brand-new case studies adapted by C. Kenneth Meyer specifically for Understanding Nonprofit Organizations—making it an even more student-friendly text for graduate and upper-division undergraduate nonprofit organizations and management survey courses.

From the Back Cover:

"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.
"Public Administration Review," Vol. 73, Issue 1, January/February, 2013
In my view, nothing competes with this book. It differs from all others in the foundational nature of its readings, the scope of coverage, and the introductory essays of the co-editors that synthesize concepts and knit together the ideas of others.
Kathleen Hale, Auburn University
This is an excellent resource to give students a taste for research in the field. It covers a variety of topics across the gamut of nonprofit management, and the introductions to the topics are clear and make the issue interesting for my students. Without this book, the course would be shallow.
Russell A. Cargo, Carroll College
