American Charitable Bequest Demographics (1992-2012), by Russell James, JD, PhD of Texas Tech University, provides an extensive review of the changing nature of American charitable estate planning.

With James’ book, you’ll learn about the estate planning trends that affect planned giving; you’ll discover how different demographic factors (i.e.: age, race, gender, family status, etc.) affect charitable estate planning; you’ll see the impact of giving and volunteering on charitable estate planning.

Global Corruption Report — Education by Transparency International, addresses the issues of corruption and poor governance as major impediments to realizing the right to education and to reaching the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education by 2015. Corruption not only distorts access to education, but also affects the quality of education and the reliability of research findings.
The Global Corruption Report is Transparency International’s flagship publication, bringing the expertise of the anti-corruption movement to bear on a specific corruption issue or sector. The Global Corruption Report on education consists of more than 70 articles commissioned from experts in the fields of corruption and education, from universities, think tanks, business, civil society and international organizations.
While the book is available in a variety of digital formats, you can find the paperback version at The Nonprofit Bookstore (powered by Amazon).
