Summary
"NGOization--the professionalization and institutionalization of social action--has long been a hotly contested issue in grassroots social movements and communities of resistance. This book pulls together for the first time unique perspectives of social struggles and critical scholarship from a wide range of geographical and political contexts to offer insights into the tensions and challenges of the NGO model, while considering the feasibility of alternatives."--Page [4] of cover.
