In the newly revised fifth edition of The Jossey-Bass Handbook of Nonprofit Leadership and Management, veteran nonprofit leader and researcher Dr. David Renz, along with co-authors Fredrik Andresson and William Brown, deliver a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the research, theory, and practices influencing contemporary nonprofit organizations. The book contains a particular focus on the unique challenges confronting all modern nonprofit leaders, including the concept of accountability and the pressure to demonstrate concrete outcomes and results during a time of extreme economic challenge.

The editor includes original contributions from 28 of the sector's leading voices, on everything from the institutional context in which nonprofits operate to the effective recruitment, selection, retention, and management of staff and volunteers. You'll also discover:
* Substantial updates and revisions to rapidly evolving subjects, including diversity, equity, and inclusion at nonprofits, social entrepreneurship, and financial leadership
* Expansive exploration of the transformed political-legal climate and context in which nonprofits operate
* In-depth consideration of the management of relationships with internal and external stakeholders and constituents

Perfect for leaders, educators, researchers, managers, and students of contemporary nonprofit leadership and management, The Jossey-Bass Handbook of Nonprofit Leadership and Management is an invaluable, one-stop resource for sitting board members and engaged volunteers at forward-looking nonprofit organizations.
