Product Overview

Focusing upon the laws and judicial opinions that have shaped practices in New York and in other states, "A Corporate Form of Freedom" provides an historical account to explain how and why getting a nonprofit corporate charter came to be a matter of right instead of a privilege--and why the nonprofit corporate form today is treated as generously as it is by the law.

From the Publisher
Editors Note A Corporate Form of Freedom explores how courts and legislatures have decided which nonprofit groups can pursue their missions as corporations. For many years it was a privilege to hold a nonprofit charter. This view changed during the 1950s and 1960s. A new generation contended that legal theory, racial justice, and democratic values demanded that the nonprofit corporate form be available to all groups as a matter of right. As a result, nonprofit corporate status became America's corporate form for free expression. The new perspective did more than enlarge public discourse, however. It also reduced official authority to supervise or otherwise hold nonprofit organizations accountable for their activities. Norman I. Silber examines how the nonprofit world was transformed -- a transformation which refashioned political and social discourse, altered the economy, and created many of the difficulties the nonprofit sector faces today.
