Summary The authors assert that traditional charity most often reinforces the status quo and maintains the dynamics of dependency and control. They maintain that social change is about power, and offer a progressive ethic of giving which attacks the root causes of social problems - change not charity. The book is geared towards enabling and encouraging individuals, whatever their wealth and social status, colour, gender or age, to work towards creating social change and a culture of giving
