"most chapters admirably reflect on the state of third sector research in different fields, showing that is has grown into a vivid research domain, clearly stimulated by high quality research outlets such as Voluntas...this book presents a plethora of challenging and sometimes critical thoughts, which should inspire all kinds of third sector researchers to refine and advance third sector knowledge".--Silva Ferreira,book reviews editor, Voluntas
“A significant contribution to the understanding of phenomena that have often not been characterized in such a richly international way, and the breadth and depth of topical coverage is commendable. This book is appropriate as a source of supplemental readings for graduate-level courses about the nature of the voluntary sector, and especially for inserting a comparative perspective in courses that might otherwise emphasize third sector activities in a single country. … a must-have resource for anybody who teaches or studies third sector activities.” (Murat Onder, International Review of Public Administration, Vol. 17 (1), April, 2012)
