About this book

Development and foreign aid are emerging as new focal points in postCold War international relations. Never before have economics figured so prominently in the politics among nations; never before have individuals and nongovernmental organizations had such an opportunity to influence the success of politics in the international arena. Here, a political scientist and an economist, both with significant development experience, bring an interdisciplinary approach to the dilemmas posed by the giving and receiving of financial and technical assistance. They answer basic questionsWhat is development? Why do countries help each other develop? Who should implement development?while illuminating the nuances of relationships between national and expatriate development professionals, donor and recipient countries, and Western and alternative views of development goals. Liberally illustrated, thoroughly documented, and filled with personal anecdotes as well as cross-national examples, the text of Dilemmas of Development Assistance is amplified by suggested readings, recommended media resources, and an extensive chronology of events marking progress in the history of development aid


Development Assistance Dilemmas The Economic Dilemma: What Is Development? The Political Dilemma: Why Do Countries Help Each Other Develop? The Individual Dilemma: Who Should Implement Development? Does Development Have a Future?
