There is no question that celebrities these days are some of the most prominent faces of philanthropic activity - yet their participation raises questions about efficacy, motivations, and activism overall. This book presents case studies of celebrity philanthropy from around the globe - including such figures as Shakira, Arundhati Roy, Zhang Ziyi, Bono, and Madonna - looking at the tensions between celebrity activism and ground-level work and the relationship between celebrity philanthropy and cultural citizenship.
