Rockefeller Philanthropy and Modern Biomedicine : International Initiatives from World War I to the Cold War, Hardback Book

Rockefeller Philanthropy and Modern Biomedicine : International Initiatives from World War I to the Cold War Hardback

Edited by William H. Schneider

Part of the Philanthropic and Nonprofit Studies series

Hardback

Description

The eight case studies in this edited volume show in detail how the Rockefeller Foundation's gifts affected medical research, education, and public health in Europe, the Soviet Union, and China between World War I and the Cold War.

Despite the Foundation's goal to help countries with established medical research programs, major advances were achieved in several countries that did not have a notable history in medical research.

In other circumstances, however, the Rockefeller Foundation was confronted with local cultural and political imperatives that reshaped or weakened its objectives.

Rockefeller Philanthropy and Modern Biomedicine offers important lessons regarding the situations in which international philanthropy is likely to be most effective.
