It may not be a philanthropy book, but I think Lewis Hyde's "The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property" is a must read for anyone interested in philanthropy.


I agree.

Thanks for your list, Phil. I've enjoyed a number of the books on your list. I'll admit to not having read Largesse, but I loved this line from the description on Amazon:

"Largesse is an exemplar of the rich intellectual work that can result from crossing disciplinary boundaries and considering history as a dense network of themes and allusions."

I'll check it out.


It is a commentary upon a collection of paintings on giving assembled in the Louvre for the book by Starobinski. Don't think the Dallas Museum of Art would ever stage such a show under the banner, "Partis Pris."
