Recently the topic of civil society has generated a wave of interest, and a wealth of new information. Until now no publication has attempted to organize and consolidate this knowledge. "The International Encyclopedia of Civil Society" fills this gap, establishing a common set of understandings and terminology, and an analytical starting point for future research. Global in scope and authoritative in content, the encyclopedia offers succinct summaries of core concepts and theories; definitions of terms; and, biographical entries on important figures and organizational profiles.In addition, it serves as a reliable and up-to-date guide to additional sources of information. In sum, the encyclopedia provides an overview of the contours of civil society, social capital, philanthropy and nonprofits across cultures and historical periods. For researchers in nonprofit and civil society studies, political science, economics, management and social enterprise, this is the most systematic appraisal of a rapidly growing field.
