From the Publisher"As usual for the award-winning Dowie, this book is right on time." Jim DulzoMetrotimes (Detroit)
"His studies of specific foundations and their programs are fascinating." MaryCarroll Booklist
"This book is a thorough review of the world of American philanthropy." Colin GreerWhole Earth
"This is an important work. Mark Dowie is offering a critique of philanthropy that is long overdue. This book I hope will spark debate within philanthropy and outside as well, and perhaps empower those whose feelings are reflected here to speak out without fear. Foundation staffs and boards should read it. It will be on the reading lists of the plethora of fundraising schools that are springing up all over the country. It should also be used in classes on civil society and contemporary America."—Steven Viederman, former President, Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation
"Mark Dowie, America's foremost investigative reporter, skewers the'philanthocracy'—liberal as well as conservative—with masterful precision and care. If you have money, or you would just like to have money, consider this book assigned reading."—BarbaraEhrenreich, author of *Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting By in America*
"American Foundations is a major and remarkable work. Dowie's specific judgments will be widely debated. His fiercely independent assessment of organized philanthropy is a wholesome challenge to the soporific and captive trade literature."—Michael Lerner, President,CommonwealPlease note: "Jenifer" is spelled with ONLY ONE "n" in this case.
"In Life Support, Michael McCally and his colleagues provide a superb and authoritative road map for the emerging environmental health movement.
