Abstract:

In this thought-provoking volume, author Konrad Bercovici takes an in-depth look at organized charity as it existed in the early twentieth century. Although Bercovici acknowledges that many disadvantaged populations need some sort of assistance to make ends meet, he marshals a series of compelling arguments against the kind of help that fosters dependence and serves to limit the self-sufficiency of the very people it purports to support.
