9780877667322: Nonprofits and Government: Collaboration and Conflict (Urban Institute Press)

The past several decades have seen unprecedented growth in the scope and complexity of relationships between government and nonprofit organizations. These relationships have been more fruitful than many critics had feared and more problematic than many advocates had hoped. Nonprofits and Government is the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary exploration of nonprofit government relations. The second edition of this important book is fully updated and includes two new chapters. The authors address a host of important issues, including nonprofit advocacy, direct regulatory and tax policy, the conversion of nonprofits to for-profits, clashes in government interaction with religion and the arts, and international nonprofit government relationships. Practitioners, researchers, and policymakers alike will benefit from the authors wide-ranging discussion.

Review:

The past three decades have seen unprecedented growth in the scope and complexity of relationships between government and nonprofits. In Nonprofits and Government, Elizabeth Boris, Eugene Steuerle, and their colleagues provide a valuable overview of where this growth has led. For anyone who wishes to understand the role of nonprofit organizations in carrying out and influencing public policy today, this collection of essays is essential reading. ―Leslie Lenkowsky, Professor of Philanthropy and Public Policy, Indiana University Center on Philanthropy

Can nonprofits make up for cuts in government spending? How dependent are nonprofits themselves on federal funds? What role do tax breaks play in charitable giving? These questions have all figured prominently in recent Washington policy debates. Now, the authors of this important book have marshaled the best evidence available to provide some much-needed answers. ―Janet Novack, Senior Editor, Washington Bureau, Forbes magazine

This volume captures beautifully the constant and fateful interaction between state and civil society in all its variety and complexity. Each of the book s learned and resourceful contributors brings analytical power and thoughtful reflection to a different dimension of this fast-shifting story of public-private engagement. ―John Simon, Augustus Lines Professor of Law, Yale Law School, and Founding Director, Yale University Program on Nonprofit Organizations
