Summary
Drawing on extensive research of archives, historical journals and newspapers, letters, and academic studies, McCarthy (history, the Graduate Center of the State U. of New York; she's director of its Center for the Study of Philanthropy) has written a detailed and thoughtful analysis of philanthropy in the US up to the Civil War. In the process, she defines the mores and trends in American society during eras marked by the struggle for abolition, fights against racism, and efforts to institute social justice.
