Philanthropy - essentially the use of private money for public
good - is hardly a new idea. Like ice cream, however, it comes in
more and more exotic flavours. Over the past decade, several books,
among them Philanthrocapitalism (Green & Bishop)
and Creative Philanthropy (Anheier & Leat) have
sought to identify the trends that are pushing the process of
giving in new directions.
