A new book by historian Olivier Zunz, Philanthropy in America, takes an engaging look at the development of philanthropy in the United States during the twentieth-century. Ira Katznelson of Columbia University writes:
This beautifully crafted book, by master historian Olivier Zunz, transforms our understanding of American civil society. Zunz compellingly traces the often auspicious, yet sometimes troublesome relationships that bind government to philanthropy, money to responsibility, and charitable decisions to social reform and democratic performance. Anyone interested in U.S. politics and society will want to engage with this riveting narrative.
This book was the focus of a panel discussion on November 16th, featuring author Olivier Zunz; John Tyler of the Kauffman Foundation; Demos Distinguished Senior Fellow Michael Edwards; and Bard College Professor Ellen Lagemann. Hudson Institute's William Schambra moderated the discussion.
