Non-Governmental Organizations Series
Co-ordinated by the Overseas Development Institute, London
This series comprises three regional studies and a synthetic overview volume (Reluctant Partners?). Each title presents detailed empirical insights into the work of non-governmental organizations in agriculture. The case material is set within the context of NGO's relations with the state and their contribution to democratization and the consolidation of rural civil society. `These path breaking studies show how grassroots organizations, with their limited financing and access to technical assistance, can help guide practitioners and scholars to increase the effectiveness of NGOs in the Third World ' Mitchell A Seligson, University of Pittsburgh
` ... of enormous importance and utility ... offers a chronicle of the past and signals pathways for the future. ' Charlie Reilly, Inter-American Foundation.
