America's nonprofit sector: a primer
In this compelling book, Lester M. Salamon counteracts "the widespread lack of knowledge about America's nonprofit sector and the role it plays in our social welfare system." The author provides a basic and easy-to-understand handbook for government officials, journalists, and students -- in short, for anyone who wants to comprehend the makeup of America's nonprofit sector. Salamon uses many charts and tables to clearly illustrate various aspects of the nonprofit world. Anyone involved in the nonprofit or the government sector should not miss his insights.
