Speaking of foundations. How do you know, guys, who's behind this or that
foundation if it is not that big and (in)famous as Olin?
Is there any kind of guide or something?
 This is not a mere curiosity. Some time ago I did a research on the
so-called Russian "postmodernism" and its role in the formation of the
comprador culture. One book, which was specialy valueable as evidence of
the American involvement in institutionalizing pomo in Russia, was said
to be financed by a foundation I never heard about.  The book was of
scandalous quality, much below even the standards of the US Sovietology
and Russian "literary studies." Who could finance that monster? I still
don't know. Hence my question: Where can one look for POLITICAL info
on US foundations?
