Letter from the Editor

This issue of the International Journal of Not-for-Profit Law opens with a special section on Latin America. We're proud to feature the reflections of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, followed by on-the-ground reports from Antonio L. Itriago and Miguel Angel Itriago, Beatriz Parodi Luna, Consuelo Castro, and Adriana Ruiz-Restrepo, and, finally, a conference report from the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Our general articles address pertinent issues in the United States, South Asia, Turkey, and Russia, as analyzed by Mark Sidel and Iftekhar Zaman, Robert Buchanan, Thomas Silk and Rosemary Fei, Filiz Bikmen, and Yulia Checkmaryova.

Our book reviews range widely too, topically (from the theoretical to the pragmatic) as well as geographically (including England, India, the Balkan Peninsula, the United States). Among our reviewers are Stephan E. Klingelhofer, Richard Fries, Bindu Sharma, Michael Bisesi, Gerald M. Easter, and Patricia Lyons.

We gratefully acknowledge the aid of the Carter Center, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, SEAL Journal, and our expert authors.
