Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Issued as a book in 1900, The Gospel of Wealth exemplified business thought and leadership in the age of the Robber Barons. Andrew Carnegie’s essays, published both in England and America, illustrated the progressive businessman’s concern with international affairs and American imperialism; his book provided perhaps the most influential social-economic justification for American capitalistic philanthropy; and, unlike many theorists, Carnegie lived up to his doctrines. The magnitude of later American philanthropy received a great impetus from his ideas and his life.
