This book will be considered important reading for political philosophers, doctoral students, and theorists interested in the connection of civil society and philanthropy. It outlines more clearly than most previously published work the implications of the conception of philanthropy as pursuit of the common good by private means.
--Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly
Bruce Sievers has made a distinctive contribution to our understanding of civil society. With seventeenth-century Holland as his point of departure, he discusses the ways in which values and institutions have interacted and melded to shape modern civil society.
