MEDIA REVIEWS
"Definitions are specific and economic entries are comprehensible... Several bold cross-references in nearly every entry lead the user to additional information... The information is accurate and current... It will be useful for academic, special, and large public libraries as well as third-sector organizations."
-"Booklist/RBB, October 15, 2005
"A helpful introduction describes the growing role and importance of philanthropic and nonprofit organizations in the 21st-century global society... All entries are up-to-date and well written... This resources has no real competitor, and it will benefit anyone who has ever been confused about the differences (and similarities) between nonprofit organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), charities, and related entities... It belongs in all philanthropy and grantsmanship reference collections... Highly recommended."
-"Choice, March 2006
