Abstract

Voluntary and non-profit organisations (VNPOs) are a central element of societies across the globe. For some societies these organisations a have a long-standing history and role stretching back over two centuries - such as in the USA and the UK - whilst for other societies, they are a much more recent phenomenon - such as in Japan. And in yet others, they have been subject to rebirth as a result of tectonic societal changes - such as in Hungary and Poland. These four volumes draw together the key debates both over time and across the globe about the management of VNPOs and explore the contribution of theory and empirical knowledge to these debates. Academics, researchers and students in a range of disciplines and fields are concerned with VNPOs, and this major work - framed by a contextualising introductory chapter - will be a touchstone for them on the key theoretical and empirical insights about the management of VNPOs.
