ISBN 978-0-8157-0330-3 | Lester M. Salamon, Ed.
This is the second edition of The State of Nonprofit America examines the forces at work on the U.S. nonprofit sector – voluntarism, professionalism, civic activism, and commercialism – and the tensions among these impulses. In the second edition of an immensely successful volume, Lester Salamon and his colleagues offer an overview of the current state of America’s nonprofit sector, examining the forces that are shaping its future and identifying the changes that might be needed. This edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect changing political realities and the punishing economic climate currently battering the nonprofit sector, which faces significant financial challenges during a time when its services are needed more than ever. This download contains the flyer for the book, and the table of contents. A sample chapter and ordering information are available at Brookings Press.
