Does Foreign Aid Really Work?
Does Foreign Aid Really Work?

5.0 out of 5 stars Do You Really Want to Understand Foreign Aid?, 20 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are lots of books available on and around the subject of foreign aid. As a layperson wanting to better understand this complex and contentious subject I think it is a question of being careful what you read.

'Does Foreign Aid Really Work?' provides a comprehensive and impartial overview of the subject.

I found this book extremely interesting, thought provoking and well constructed.

If there is anything less positive to say it might be that, if you are looking for a light read to 'dip into the subject', this may not be for you. However, I believe that taking this approach would be a false economy in terms of spending time reading some less comprehensive and perhaps partial alternatives.
