Reviews

"This academic and research focused title adds a different perspective to philanthropy, but reading it was like climbing a high mountain: the way up is rather bumpy and the reader has to take a couple of detours before arriving at the top. But the view in the end is great! It offers an outlook on philanthropy's impact in the field of education that is highly critical of common beliefs." - Michael Alberg-Seberich, Alliance Magazine
