An Introduction to the New Frontiers of Philanthropy and Social Investment

Lester M. Salamon

  • Provides the most comprehensive and balanced account of a development that is fundamentally changing the way social and environmental purposes are beginning to be pursued around the world-namely through complex combinations of charitable, governmental, and private investment resources
  • Introduces the concept of the 'new frontiers of philanthropy,' a new conceptual lens that can organize and bring into focus a quite dramatic and promising set of changes under way in the broad arena of mobilizing private resources for social and environmental purposes
  • Lays a powerful foundation for students newly entering this field as well as long-time practitioners who are familiar with one or another tool of type or organization but have a limited understanding of the entire eco-system that is emerging
