What People are Saying

“Quigley presents a vast amount of new information, based on a comprehensive, sophisticated research effort. This material will be of great utility to persons interested in Eastern Europe, and the book will certainly become the standard work on the role of private foundations in the former communist states.”—Thomas Carothers, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, author of Assessing Democracy Assistance: The Case of Romania

“An interesting account of the role played by foundations—public and private—in assisting democratic development… a wealth of unique information and detail.”—Democratization
