Non-Governmental Development Organizations have seen turbulent times over the decades; however recent years have seen them grow to occupy high profile positions in the fight against poverty. They are now seen as an important element of e~civil societye(tm), a concept that has been given increasing importance by global policy makers. This book has evolved during the course of that period to be a prime resource for those working (or wishing to work) with and for NGOs.The third edition of Non-Governmental Organizations, Management and Development is fully updated and thoroughly reorganized covering key issues including, but not limited to, debates on the changing global context of international development and the changing concepts and practices used by NGOs. The interdisciplinary approach employed by David Lewis results in an impressive text drawing upon current research in non-prot management, development management, public management and management theory, exploring the activities, relationships and internal structure of the NGO. This book remains the first and only comprehensive and academically-grounded guide to the issues facing international development NGOs as they operate in increasingly complex and challenging conditions around the world. It is the perfect resource for students undertaking studies of NGOs and the non-profit sector, in addition to being an excellent resource for development studies students more generally.
