Private Means, Public Ends, Volume 4

Kenneth W. Thompson

While many people portray the American private and public sectors as antagonists, philanthropy constitutes a realm lying between the two. An institution unique in America, philanthropy draws its resources from the successes of free enterprise and seeks to apply them to the common good. The contributors are among the nation's foremost practitioners and scholars of philanthropy: Robert Payton, David Robinson, John G. Simon, Mark J. Rozell, Theodore Lowi, Pamela Vines, and Kenneth Thompson. « less more »
