This book shows how voluntary charity, as opposed through charity where alms are obtained through the point of a gun, are demonstrably better for society. There is a lot of citations in this book, which thoroughly documents the authors research on the topic. With such a body of evidence as collected by the author, it is hard to understand why the author draws the conclusion he does. This book, by far, provides the most comprehensive study of voluntary charity in the United States that I have ever seen.
