ARNOVA Founder Challenges Scholars

David Horton Smith, speaking last week at the annual meeting of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action, took on the "dark side of the nonprofit sector."  Smith urged scholars to take a more critical look at organizations.  Putnam Barber, an editor of ARNOVA's journal, countered that many scholars examine issues of accountability and governance.  He suggested that scholars of criminology might be better suited to examine the "deviant organizations" Smith described.  For a story about Smith's remarks in the Chronicle of Philanthropy go here.
