Blending liberalism with old values, David Callahan’s many nonfiction books include Fortunes of Change, The Moral Center, and The Cheating Culture, a “meticulously researched, thoughtful and damning look at our broken moral compass” (Philadelphia Inquirer). He is founder of the website Inside Philanthropy and co-founder of the think-tank Demos, a frequent media commentator, and has contributed articles to the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post. In The Givers, Callahan delves into the secretive realm of elite philanthropists and the ways they shape governmental policy.
