Editorial Reviews

David Rouse
Many management concepts and practices apply universally, but nonprofit organizations have many unique aspects that make administration and direction of them different. A few books, most notably Peter Drucker's "Managing the Non-Profit Organization" (1990), have considered this. Now Herman, who teaches nonprofit management at the graduate level at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, and publisher Jossey-Bass have brought together 28 experts in the fields of nonprofits and management to give us this encyclopedic look at what is sometimes called the third sector. Divided into five major sections (the nature of nonprofit organizations and their context in society, leadership issues, management of operations, development and management of financial resources, and managing people) that address such issues as fund-raising, managing volunteers, lobbying, ethics, and government contracts, the "Handbook" should become a major reference work for this subject of growing significance.
Booknews
Experts in the nonprofit and management fields describe effective practice in all the important functions, processes, and strategies of nonprofit organization leadership and management. Based on current research, theory, and experience, the 25-chapter, five-part volume offers practical, comprehensive advice on managing nonprofit organizations. Key aspects include board development, strategic planning, lobbying, marketing, government contracting, volunteer programs, fundraising, financial and management accounting, compensation and benefits programs, and risk management.
