Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the introduction of the first edition of his landmark book The Third America, Michael O'Neill created a much-needed resource for analyzing and understanding the "invisible sector"-the thousands of nonprofit organizations that have a significant impact on society but have less than significant visibility.

The nonprofit sector is no longer invisible. It is a high-profile, high-impact community that affects the lives of people throughout the country and the world. Understanding the nonprofit sector is essential--both to the professionals and volunteers within the sector and to concerned citizens and community leaders who work with the nonprofits that influence our society.

In Nonprofit Nation, the new edition of his classic work, O'Neill takes a fresh look at the nonprofit sector and the power it has to use its growing visibility and strength. Like the first edition, this new book is an up-to-date, comprehensive guide to understanding the nonprofit sector. Identifying and examining the major nonprofit subsectors-health care, arts, social service, and religious organizations, for example-and detailing their particular concerns and impact enable O'Neill to explore their influence on business, government and society. The new edition also features:

  • Expanded sections on scope and impact
  • Updated and enlarged statistical information
  • New insights on the development of the nonprofit sector
  • A new section on theories of the nonprofit sector
In addition, O'Neill addresses the direction, growth, and role of the nonprofit sector for the next twenty-five years, and his insights are sure to prove helpful to nonprofits wanting to sustain and increase their impact on society.

Book News Annotation:

O'Neill (nonprofit management, U. of San Francisco) describes the recent growth and current extent of the nonprofit sector in the US, its impact on society, key challenges facing nonprofits, and possible future directions. This account differs from his 1989 The Third America by focusing on the years 1950-2000, and including more extensive statistics. His expected readers are students of nonprofits and philanthropy, managers and other participants in nonprofits, and historians.
