1.0 out of 5 stars
very poor read, 14 Sep 2012
I have read many books on international development and this is by far the worst. It reads like the ramblings of an old professor. There is no real structure to the book which means that the few good points in it are lost amongst the blocks of endless text. This is one of the only book I had to give up on but it is so poorly written and all over the place and couldn't carry on.
I appear in the minority as the other two reviews sing its praises, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone especailly with the plethora of great development books out there
