Product Details


“David Callahan has performed a public service by assembling a striking body of information on a fundamental aspect of 21st-century America.” —Robert G. Kaiser, The Washington Post

“Callahan offers a peek inside a rarefied, poorly understood world with ever greater power to remake the broader world.” —Michelle Cottle, The New York Times Book Review

“A convincing argument. . . . Callahan is intimately familiar with today’s living donors and how they are spending their money, and his book is replete with examples of philanthropists that are upending the democratic process.” —Alana Semuels, The Atlantic

“[A] fascinating look into perhaps one of the least understood trends in the public square.” —Dan Kaplan, Booklist (Starred Review)

“An intriguing look at the world of big-ticket philanthropy. . . . An eye-opening view of a vast sector of the economy that lies in the shadows but has undue influence, for ill or good.” Kirkus
