Detailed information is included on over 1450 foundations in some 100 countries throughout the world. The book provides accurate information on both established foundations and those which have recently emerged as important national and international bodies. A wide range of activity is covered, including science, education, arts and humanities. Entries are arranged alphabetically by country, listing each institution's name, address, telephone, fax, e-mail and Internet number, and function and aim, together with its activities, date of establishment, finances, publications and key executives where available. This edition contains numerous new entries, and is redesigned to contain more information in an easy-to-use format. Each entry comes from the foundation itself, ensuring that the information provided is as accurate as possible. The history and development of foundations is detailed by H.V. Hodson.
