Customer Review

on January 20, 2009
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.
