This book presents case studies of celebrity philanthropy from around the globe - including such figures as Shakira, Arundhati Roy, Zhang Ziyi, Bono, and Madonna - looking at the tensions between celebrity activism and groundlevel work and the relationship between celebrity philanthropy and cultural citizenship.
