In this new edition of his popular textbook, Nonprofit Organizations, Helmut K. Anheier has fully updated his comprehensive introduction to this field. The text takes an international perspective, detailing the background and concepts behind these organizations and examining relevant theories and central issues. Anheier covers the full range of nonprofit organizations '¬ ; service providers, membership organizations, foundations, community groups '¬ ; in different fields, such as arts and culture, social services, education. He introduces central terms such as philanthropy, charity, community, social entrepreneurship, social investment and public good. Acknowledging and explaining how the field spills over from public management, thorough nonprofit management and public administration, the textbook is systematic in its treatment of theories, management approaches and policy analyses. The previous edition was winner of the Best Book Award at the American Academy of Management in 2006 and this new edition, expanded and reorganized into parts and chapters, will fit both the North American and European schedules of academic teaching.
