These ten essays are intended to help re-assess current approaches to philanthropy and offer a fresh perspective on how existing attitudes to charity have been formed. The style is at times too esoteric for the general reader but it is worth persevering to uncover the role that philanthropy has played at the heart of many of the most exciting and important changes within three societies in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
