Words of wisdom from American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie Focusing on Carnegie's most famous essay, "The Gospel of Wealth," this book of his writings, published here together for the first time, demonstrates the late steel magnate's beliefs on wealth, poverty, the public good, and capitalism. Carnegie's commitment to ensuring and promoting the welfare of his fellow human beings through philanthropic deeds ranged from donations to universities and museums to establishing more than 2,500 public libraries in the English-speaking world, and he gave away more than $350 million toward those efforts during his lifetime. The Gospel of Wealth is an eloquent testament to the importance of charitable giving for the public good.

The Scottish-born industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835¿1919) was one of the titans of America¿s Gilded Age. He was also a prolific author, writing hundreds of letters to the editor, speeches, articles, and pamphlets, as well as seven books, including an Autobiography (published posthumously in 1920). Proud of his pen, Carnegie is today perhaps most celebrated as the author of a pair of articles first published in the North American Review in 1889, which together have come to be known as The Gospel of Wealth. Here, Carnegie boldly articulated his view of the rich as mere trustees of their wealth who should live unostentatiously, provide moderately for their families, and use their fortunes to promote the ¿general good.¿ Indeed, declared Carnegie: ¿The man who dies thus rich dies disgraced.¿

The first anthology to bring together a representative selection of Carnegie's writings which show him as a shrewd businessman, celebrated philanthropist, champion of democracy, and eternal optimist. Carnegie's first letter to the editor at the age of seventeen was the beginning of a lifelong attempt to satisfy an insatiable journalistic desire. Always voluble and candid, Carnegie was as active with his pen as with his tongue. Although most of the selections were penned for an audience now long gone, today's reader will be intrigued by the pertinence and timelessness of Carnegie's hopes for world peace, his views on labor, and his concern for better race relations in America.
