This is a comprehensive country-by-country analysis of the scope, size, composition, and financing of the global civil society sector throughout the world. The contributors assert that the nonprofit sector is a more significant economic force around the world than is commonly understood, and that substantial differences exist in its overall size and composition in different countries, and that the sector has grown substantially in recent years. The book covers twenty-two countries in Western Europe, Central Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.

Characteristically ambitious, the report on the Johns Hopkins Institute international comparative nonprofit sector research is entitled, Global Civil Society. Does the book live up to this promise? Does it define civil society on a global scale?
The research is the first systematically comparative and methodologically rigorous map of the economic dimensions of the nonprofit sector in 22 countries, from six different regions. The extensive material is condensed into a large but manageable and attractive volume, easy to navigate and read. A concise overview chapter is followed by individual country chapters-each similarly organized with clear graphics. Key comparative results ar compiled into a set of summary tables in an appendix....
This project has been a tour de force of practical and theoretical international coordination. A major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the sector worldwide, this is a rich resource for future researchers and should be on the reading list of everyone involved in the nonprofit sector. -- Alliance, vol. 4., no. 4
