Family Legacies

Wealth and Philanthropy in the Arab World

Barbara Ibrahim and Heba Abou Shnief

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

Family Legacies: Wealth and Philanthropy in the Arab World presents an overview of current approaches to family wealth and charitable giving in the Middle East. Barbara Ibrahim and Heba Abou Shnief interviewed more than twenty successful individuals from around the region, to learn about the principles that guide their philanthropy decisions, the reasons for their support of particular projects, and-perhaps most importantly-how they transmit to the younger generations not only financial resources, but the ideals and goals that guide them in the use of those resources to help others and improve society.
