Joel Fleishman knows the sector like few others, and in this groundbreaking book he explains both the history of foundations - with their fledgling beginnings in the era of the robber barons seeking social respectability - through to the present day.
This book shows how, why foundations matters, and how the future of foundations can provide a vital spur to the engine of the American, and the world's, economy - if they are properly established and run.
