Editorial Reviews

"This book does exactly what it promises to do: bring to life the practice of development. Scrupulously neutral, in writing devoid of ideological a priori assertions and theoretical hang-ups, Andrea Rugh carefully analyzes three major aid programs in which she herself was involved in the last three decades and lets the facts speak for themselves. In so doing, she manages to convey both development aid’s promises and its shortcomings, its creativity and blinders, its failures and successes." - Peter Uvin, Henry J. Leir Professor of International Humanitarian Studies, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University
