Reports/Books, October 13

Here are some recently released publications on nonprofits and philanthropy:

* Carl Schramm, CEO of the Kauffman Foundation, has written a new book, “The Entrepreneurial Imperative: How America’s Economic Miracle Will Reshape the World – and Change Your Life,” discussing how the United States can sustain its expansion by supporting entrepreneurial capitalism. Schramm outlines necessary changes in government, education and corporations to promote the right entrepreneurial network.

* Allison Fine has written a book, “Momentum: Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age,” in which she outlines how to use social media, such as email, text messaging, instant messaging and iPods, to support work in the independent sector. Fine emphasizes the need to harness social media, move power to the edges and encourage democratic rather than top-down approaches.

* Elizabeth Boris and Eugene Steuerle have released the second edition of their book, “Nonprofits and Government: Collaboration and Conflict,” which includes articles from 18 leading experts outlining the critical issues of the increasingly complex nonprofit-government relationship.

* Reverend Dr. Richard M. Cromie has written a book, “You Now Have Custody of You; Christian Responses to Marriage and Divorce.” The book, which was published by Desert Ministries, Inc., describes recent attitude changes to marriage and divorce and emphasizes that it is necessary to be “whole within” in order to incorporate someone else into your life.
