[Book abstract:] Now, more than ever, with growing economic and social inequalities and ethno-nationalisms around the world, students of nonprofit and voluntary organization management need tools, methods, and case studies that enable them to critically think about how to not only cope, but also challenge and change the environments in which they work. This book serves as a critical companion to standard nonprofit management textbooks by providing students with an opportunity to rethink unquestioned assumptions about nonprofit and voluntary organizations and their management and to challenge the status quo.

Each chapter of Reframing Nonprofit Organizations, authored by scholars from around the world, addresses a key topic or area of practice related to nonprofit and voluntary organization management, such as governance, planning, evaluation, financial management, and volunteer management—always applying critical theory to very practical application.
