Introduction to the Transaction Edition book
Dwight Macdonald’s The Ford Foundation: The Men and the Millions remains after more than thirty years the only book-length account of the Ford Foundation that has been published. 1 Richard Magat’s The Ford Foundation at Work (1979) describes how the Foundation has gone about its work, illustrating with case studies and summarizing the major programs to that date. 2 But Magat denied any aspiration to be Macdonald’s continuator or supplanter. He and McGeorge Bundy, then retiring from the Foundation’s presidency, called to scholars for a serious, full-length account of the Foundation. Special studies have since appeared, but their call for a big book carrying Macdonald’s story on from 1956 remains yet unanswered.
