America's Nonprofit Sector: A Primer
In this new, expanded edition of America's Nonprofit Sector, Lester Salamon clarifies the basic scope, structure, operation, and role of the nonprofit sector in the U.S. Moreover, he places the nonprofit sector into context in relation to government and the business sector. He also shows how the position of the nonprofit sector has changed over time, both generally and in the major fields in which the sector is active. The result is a basic introduction not only to the American nonprofit sector but to the American social welfare system more generally. This revised edition adds new chapters on religious institutions, future trends, and updated data and analysis throughout.
