Abstract only: Research conducted in 1998 in Tasmania indicated that a fourth sector of society distinct from Market, Government and community, was emerging. The comparative analysis between seven Tasmanian and seven Texan non-government human service organisations showed dramatic differences between the two groups but also common ground. There was evidence of an emerging social group, possibly a new fourth sector of society, calling into question the conceptual adequacy of civil society.
