  1. Islamic Education in the United States and the Evolution of Muslim Nonprofit Institutions

    Islamic Education in the United States and the Evolution of Muslim Nonprofit Institutions

    Sabith Khan, Shariq Siddiqui
    This book is a novel and ambitious attempt to map the Muslim American nonprofit sector: its origins, growth and impact on American society. Using theories from the fields of philanthropy, public administration and data gathered from surveys and interviews, the authors make a compelling case for the Muslim American nonprofit sector’s key role in America. They argue that in a time when Islamic schools are grossly misunderstood, there is a need to examine them closely, for the landscape of these schools is far more complex than meets the eye.

  13. The International Handbook on Social Innovation

    The International Handbook on Social Innovation

    Edited by Frank Moulaert, Diana MacCallum, Abid Mehmood, Abdelillah Hamdouch
    The contributors provide an overview of theoretical perspectives, methodologies and instructive experiences from all continents, as well as implications for collective action and policy.

The Handbook defines social innovation as innovation in social relations within both micro and macro spheres, with the purpose of satisfying unmet or new human needs across different layers of society. It connects social innovation to empowerment dynamics, thus giving a political character to social movements and bottom-up governance initiatives. Together these should lay the foundations for a fairer, more democratic society for all. Learn More

  14. Finance in an Age of Austerity

    Finance in an Age of Austerity

    Johnston Birchall
    This is a book in search of an alternative to the discredited investor-owned banks that have brought the rich countries into crisis and the world economy into a long period of austerity. It finds customer-owned banks – credit unions, co-operative banks, building societies – have hardly been affected by the crisis and continue to operate according to their organisational DNA: low-risk, close to the customer, underpinned by real savings, and still lending to SMEs to protect jobs and local economies. They are big business – in some countries with over 40% of the market – but networked in smaller, democratic societies whose origins go back to 1850s Germany. Learn More

    Entrepreneurship, Social Capital and Governance

    Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Börje Johansson, Roger R. Stough

In recent decades, many researchers have claimed that entrepreneurship is the most critical factor in sustaining regional economic growth. However, most entrepreneurship research is undertaken without considering the fundamental importance of the regional context. Other research has emphasized the role of social capital but there are substantial problems in empirically relating measures of social capital to regional economic development. Learn More
