This history of the John M. Olin Foundation and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation tells the inspiring stories of the entrepreneurs who led these highly effective organizations. Author John J. Miller, national political reporter at National Review , describes the dramatic effect of their strategic giving, taking in-depth looks at triumphs in the fields of K-12 school reform, welfare reform, higher education, and law and economics.

Miller also provides new and potential philanthropists a road map which shows how they, too, can achieve further breakthroughs by establishing similar foundations. Much more progress awaits donors who aim to strengthen freedom and broaden opportunity in America.
