Overview

* First place winner of Independent Sector’s 2001 Virginia A. Hodgkinson Research Prize
* Detailed analyses of twenty-two countries in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the Middle East
* Exemplifies how global civil society has significantly grown in recent years

This is a comprehensive country-by-country analysis of the scope, size, composition, and financing of the global civil society sector throughout the world. The contributors assert that the nonprofit sector is a more significant economic force around the world than is commonly understood, and that substantial differences exist in its overall size and composition in different countries, and that the sector has grown substantially in recent years. The book covers twenty-two countries in Western Europe, Central Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.
