From the Publisher
'A must read for scholars because of the breadth of literature covered and for students because it gives them an in-depth view of the complexity of the subject and provides examples of how that complexity plays itself out in the day-to-day realities of NGO life.' - Ann Marie Thomson, Indiana University Bloomington, USA

'...this is a very impressive and useful summary of the literature.' - Sylvia I. Bergh, Voluntas
