The book encompasses everything from Andrew Carnegie's turn-of-the-century philosophy of philanthropy to the most recent writings by current scholars and practitioners from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. Each part in the book opens with a framing essay by the editors that provides an overview of the central themes and issues, as well as the sometimes competing points of view. The third edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to feature new essays that analyze the nonprofit sector's place in our economy and its relationship to our government, and new readings on the economic, community, and civil society theories of the nonprofit sector.
