This monograph provides an overview of nonprofit cultural heritage organizations in the United States and a snapshot of their structure, finances and programs. Dr. Rosenstein confirms that cultural heritage organizations are fundamentally community oriented, and that their primary intent to preserve and benefit youth, elders, immigrants, ethnic groups, neighborhoods, towns, and cities is both explicit and reflected in a broad programmatic range of activities beyond the arts. She also finds that cultural heritage organizations are small and lack financial resources compared with the nonprofit arts, culture and humanities sub sector. An interesting list of bibliographic references on arts and culture is provided. (KHH)
