Product description


"An invaluable compendium: accurate, detailed, and up–to–date facts embedded in an incisive commentary on the history, impact, and prospects of the nonprofit sector. The marriage of information and understanding at its very best."
––Paul G. Schervish, director, Social Welfare Research Institute and professor, Department of Sociology, Boston College

"Written by an outstanding scholar and leader in the nonprofit research field and rich with information, this masterful overview of the voluntary, nonprofit sector in America successfully balances accuracy of presentation, comprehensiveness, and careful judgements with a high degree of readability. This is one book that everyone concerned with American nonprofits and philanthropy should read to understand the nonprofit sector as a whole."
––David Horton Smith, founder, Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action

"The most comprehensive guidebook to America′s magnificent but still largely uncharted third, nonprofit, voluntary, independent sector, written by the person most qualified to guide us."
––Brian O′Connell, founding president, INDEPENDENT SECTOR

"Michael O′Neill has written a Baedeker for the nonprofit world. No traveler should leave home without having read it."
––Leslie Lenkowsky, professor, Center on Philanthropy, Indiana University


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. Identifying and examining the major nonprofit subsectors--health care, arts, social service, and religious organizations, for example--and detailing their particular concerns and impact enable O'Neill to explore their influence on business, government and society. The new edition also features: Expanded sections on scope and impact Updated and enlarged statistical information New insights on the development of the nonprofit sector A new section on theories of the nonprofit sector
