"An important corrective to the wishful view that bringing capitalist principles to philanthropy will be good for both endeavors." --Robert Kuttner, coeditor of The American Prospect and author of Everything for Sale "There are all too few people in today's complex and confusing world who have either the courage or the clarity to speak truth to power. Michael Edwards has both, for which this well-researched, solidly argued, and levelheaded book provides ample evidence." --Gita Sen, Professor, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore; Adjunct Professor, Harvard School of Public Health; and Research Coordinator, Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) "Anyone who wants the truth of philanthropy in America should read this book." --Robert B. Reich, Professor of Public Policy, University of California, Berkeley and author of Supercapitalism
