The nonprofit sector in China (including nongovernmental organizations, foundations, and charities) is fairly new, especially to foreigners, since the rapid development of this "third sector" has not been widely studied in Western scholarship. The contributors to this volume have been engaged in research of China's nonprofit sector for many years, and are intimately familiar with the operation of Chinese nonprofit organizations.

China's Nonprofit Sector describes the development of China's nonprofit sector since 1995, including discussions on the rise of corporate responsibility and charitable foundations, grassroots organizations, and the microphilanthropy that arose after the Sichuan earthquake in 2008. It enumerates the shifting legal framework, the complex relationship between government-affiliated and private sector organizations, the media's role, the emergence of microphilanthropy, and the lack of knowledge of the general public regarding philanthropic enterprises.

This volume, in Transaction's Asian Studies series, directly addresses the topic of China's nonprofit sector and gives a coherent and comprehensive account of its development and challenges. This work will be of value for all policy specialists, Asian Studies scholars, and all individuals interested in China.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The publication of China's Nonprofit Sector opens a window for the reader to view and understand the historical development, evolution, and roles that the nonprofit sector plays in China today. The book provides an excellent framework for understanding the types and kinds of nonprofit organizations, including foundations, publicly affiliated nonprofit organizations, and fully private nonprofits, along with the issues associated with each type. It also carefully and frankly explicates the cultural context and the political, technological, regulatory, and fiscal environments for such organizations. Finally, this book will also assist the reader in understanding the status of nonprofits in China today, the significant progress and potential in their development and contribution to Chinese society, and the challenges such organizations will face in the future."
