Customer Review

10 July 2013
Having seen the post-war aid flowing into Georgia myself, I was very much looking forward to Till Bruckner's book.

It is an excellent piece, an in-depth empirical study of how aid actually gets delivered on the ground. So this serves as an intriguing case study of divergent interests, and of how donors often have little understanding of what NGOs do, who in turn are not necessarily responsive to the people they are serving.

The book can be read as a compelling case study of Georgia, as a broader analysis of institutional interaction in development, and then as an illustration of various ways in which accountability fails to deliver on the hopes vested in it. One particularly attractive aspect is that the book is based on extensive experience in the field in Georgia, accumulated over many years. I have recommended the book repeatedly, to people interested in Georgia, to people interested in aid -- and also as an example of how a dissertation (or really any piece of great research) should be written.
