Media reviews

A copy belongs in every university library, government aid agency, donor organisation, and NGO resource centre. Grassroots Development, 20/1.Even though an Oxfam specific publication, it claims to draw on experiences from the third world as a whole. To that extent, it is an excellent book which any organisation or individual dealing with relief and poverty should have. Africa World Review.
