Summary of America's Nonprofit Sector: A Primer

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 and 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.

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.
