"In sum, this volume is a thoughtful exploration of both the past and the future of philanthropic theory. Recommended highly... " —Library Journal

" Together, these thoughtful essays convey both the scope and complexity of the moral, philosophical, and practical issues surrounding the sources, methods, and consequences of philanthropy." —The Journal of American History

Andrew Carnegie enjoined his fellow millionaires "to help those who will help themselves." Do the rich of today have responsibilities toward society in the use of their wealth for the public good? Commentators from Carnegie to some of our leading scholars of philanthropy explore that question. Topics include the "ethics of responsibility," liberal and corporate philanthropy, the contrast between Jane Addams’s and Carnegie’s views of the responsibilities of wealth, and the religious roots of philanthropy.
