About this book

Globalization is perhaps the most extensively discussed topic in contemporary academic literature and mass media. Many philanthropic organizations work on a global level and have been participants in the spread of globalization. This book specifically deals with the role of philanthropy in past and present globalizations, and the contributors explore the scope and degree of the relationships between globalization, philanthropy and civil society and demonstrate the relationships empirically and theoretically. Unlike most existing publications on globalization, this volume examines complex and diverse links between philanthropy, civil society and globalization as a single theme that goes beyond standard economic interpretations.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"It contains chapters that are, overall, very strong, and add usefully to our knowledge of how philanthropy and civil society are shaping and being shaped by the process of globalization. … What the volume does well is to present a number of high quality case studies concerning the international experiences of American philanthropy during the Cold War in South and East Asia. These are presented alongside useful state-of-the-field surveys that review the status of international philanthropy … ." (Steven Heydemann, Voluntas, Vol. 17 (3), 2006)

"The editors describe the historic evolution of globalization and civil society and provide a brief summary of the chapters to follow. … this volume will be of interest to different sets of scholars: either those focused on globalization … or those interested in the evolution of philanthropy globally but not both. The chapters on philanthropy should be of interest to Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly readers and students of philanthropy." (Jennifer M. Brinkerhoff, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Vol. 36 (1), March, 2007)
