Earthscan Reader on NGO Management by Michael Edwards
Book DescriptionIn the last ten years, NGOs have become a force for transformation in global politics and economics. Their numbers and size have grown dramatically and they have assumed far more extensive responsibilities as intermediaries between governments, businesses and other institutions, and local communities and citizens. With this growth has come an ever-more pressing requirement for effective management among NGOs and their operations. Focusing on development organizations working on issues of poverty and injustice, but relevant to NGOs in all sectors, this volume brings together a selection of key writings on how NGOs can position and organize themselves to achieve maximum impact and effectiveness. The editors set out the management challenges facing NGOs in a stimulating Introduction followed by a range of contributions divided into ten sets of issues.

Books By Author Michael Edwards
Civil Society, Paperback (April 2014)
Civil Society has become a standard work of reference for those who seek to understand the role of voluntary citizen action. Recent global unrest has shown the importance of social movements and street protests in world politics.
NGOs, States and Donors, Paperback (September 2013)
Since the book was first published, NGOs have continued to rise in prominence, but our concerns have been little redressed. The new Preface and Afterword to this IPE Classic provide an up to date review of the debates on NGOs and the development sector that consolidate on this argument and look briefly at some of the reactions it has received.
Oxford Handbook of Civil Society, Paperback (July 2013)
Broadly speaking, The Oxford Handbook of Civil Society views the topic of civil society through three prisms: as a part of society (voluntary associations), as a kind of society (marked out by certain social norms), and as a space for citizen action and engagement (the public square or sphere).
Small Change, Paperback (January 2010)» View all books by Michael Edwards
A new movement is afoot that promises to save the world by applying the magic of the market to the challenges of social change. Its supporters argue that using business principles to solve global problems is far more effective than more traditional approaches. This book reveals that in reality, a market approach hurts more than it helps.
