EDITOR'S NOTES


T   HIS ISSUE of NVSQ contains three articles concerned with the motivations
    for creating and participating in nonprofit organizations and voluntary
social movements.
    Michael O'Neill provides us with an argument that member benefit orga-
nizations should be more centrally included in our discussions of nonprofit
organizations-they  have been excluded from most  discussions concerning
the nature of the third sector. O'Neill further suggests, by drawing on the his-
torical record, that member benefit might be considered a central feature of all
nonprofits.
    Kim  Bloomfield examines Alcoholics Anonymous,  asking whether, or in
what way, we might consider Alcoholics Anonymous  a social movement. Her
treatment shows that this question, like O'Neill's examination, raises troubling
conceptual and definitional issues. Those who argue that social movements
must have a political orientation generally reject self-help groups like Alco-
holics Anonymous.  Bloomfield draws upon  the European identity-oriented
paradigm.
    Natalie J. Webb explores reasons for which corporations might create
foundations and relates the formation of corporate foundations to tax policy
in the United States. Offering an economic analysis, she shows the close rela-
tionship between shifts in tax policy and foundation creation.
