From the reviews:
"It contains chapters that are, overall, very strong, and add usefully to our knowledge of how philanthropy and civil society are shaping and being shaped by the process of globalization. ... What the volume does well is to present a number of high quality case studies concerning the international experiences of American philanthropy during the Cold War in South and East Asia. These are presented alongside useful state-of-the-field surveys that review the status of international philanthropy ... ." (Steven Heydemann, Voluntas, Vol. 17 (3), 2006)
"The editors describe the historic evolution of globalization and civil society and provide a brief summary of the chapters to follow. ... this volume will be of interest to different sets of scholars: either those focused on globalization ... or those interested in the evolution of philanthropy globally but not both. The chapters on philanthropy should be of interest to Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly readers and students of philanthropy." (Jennifer M. Brinkerhoff, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Vol. 36 (1), March, 2007)
