Nonprofit Nation: A New Look at the Third America (Google eBook)
With the introduction of the first edition of his landmark book The Third America, Michael O'Neill created a much-needed resource for analyzing and understanding the "invisible sector"-the thousands of nonprofit organizations that have a significant impact on society but have less than significant visibility.
The nonprofit sector is no longer invisible. It is a high-profile, high-impact community that affects the lives of people throughout the country and the world. Understanding the nonprofit sector is essential--both to the professionals and volunteers within the sector and to concerned citizens and community leaders who work with the nonprofits that influence our society.
In Nonprofit Nation, the new edition of his classic work, O'Neill takes a fresh look at the nonprofit sector and the power it has to use its growing visibility and strength. Like the first edition, this new book is an up-to-date, comprehensive guide to understanding the nonprofit sector.
