Superlative reports drawn from City Journal show how charities old and new can succeed spectacularly when they encourage the poor to take control of their own lives and when they teach habits of self-reliance and the traditional virtues. Here is an urgent issue considered in vivid and practical fashion. "City Journal is the great Fool Killer in the arena of urban policy. It's more than sharp and penetrating. It's a joy to read." Tom Wolfe. "It is a perfect time to understand better why some charities succeed and others fail. For this purpose and others, What Makes Charity Work? is a must." Leslie Lenkowsky, Wall Street Journal.
