Partners in Public Service

Government-Nonprofit Relations in the Modern Welfare State

Winner of the Distinguished Book in Nonprofit and Voluntary Action Research Award from the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organization and Voluntary Action

Partners in Public Service brings together some of Lester Salamon's most important work on the changing relationship between government and the voluntary sector in the American version of the modern welfare state. Approaching issues from a variety of perspectives, Salamon covers topics such as the theoretical basis of government-nonprofit cooperation and recent efforts to cut federal spending.

Lester M. Salamon is director of the Institute for Policy Studies at the Johns Hopkins University.

"Essential reading for anyone wishing to grasp the fundamentals of today's nonprofit sector."

"One of the best books on voluntary social welfare. It may become the definitive work on the subject and should be widely consulted."
