The nonprofit sector in China (including nongovernmental
organizations, foundations, and charities) is fairly new,
especially to foreigners, since the rapid development of this
"third sector" has not been widely studied in Western scholarship.
The contributors to this volume have been engaged in research of
China's nonprofit sector for many years, and are intimately
familiar with the operation of Chinese nonprofit organizations.
China's Nonprofit Sector describes the development of China's
nonprofit sector since 1995, including discussions on the rise of
corporate responsibility and charitable foundations, grassroots
organizations, and the microphilanthropy that arose after the
Sichuan earthquake in 2008. It enumerates the shifting legal
framework, the complex relationship between government-affiliated
and private sector organizations, the media's role, the emergence
of microphilanthropy, and the lack of knowledge of the general
public regarding philanthropic enterprises.
This volume, in Transaction's Asian Studies series, directly
addresses the topic of China's nonprofit sector and gives a
coherent and comprehensive account of its development and
challenges. This work will be of value for all policy specialists,
Asian Studies scholars, and all individuals interested in
