Summary

In this new, fully revised and 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. More than that, 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.

In addition to examining the nonprofit sector as a whole, Salamon includes separate chapters on the various "subsectors" of health care; education; social services; arts, culture and recreation; advocacy, legal service, and international aid; and religion. For each, he identifies the role of the nonprofit sector, compares it to the roles played by government and for-profit firms, and highlights recent trends, drawing on the most up-to-date data available. A concluding chapter then looks to the future and draws on Salamon's long experience in this field to identify the major opportunities and challenges facing nonprofit organizations in the years ahead.

Written in a clear, easy-to-understand fashion, with numerous illustrative charts and graphs, America's Nonprofit Sector: A Primer is ideal for students, journalists, government officials, and citizens in the United States and elsewhere in the world who want a thorough yet comprehensible guide to this important component of American life. This revised edition adds a foreword by John W. Gardner, co-founder of Independent Sector, an entirely new chapter on religious institutions, a new chapter on future trends, and updated data and analysis throughout.
