    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 22.50

    A twentieth-century innovation, foreign aid has become a familiar and even expected element in international relations.

    Oxford University Press, USA 2007; US$ 14.99

    Global poverty, Paul Collier points out, is actually falling quite rapidly for about eighty percent of the world.

  • Aid and Influenceby Stephen Browne

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 39.95

    Aid is always a means of influence: political, commercial, military and security-related. Some influence is benign, but much of it is coercive, even 'imperialistic'. Given the nature of aid, its effectiveness should be judged not only in developmental terms, but in terms of international relations. Even donors agree that, on both counts, the returns... more...

    According to an old saying, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." In 22 brief and insightful essays, Richard B.

    Crown Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.00

    In his celebrated previous book, Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation Into Civilization?s End , Lawrence E.

  • For Protection and Promotionby Margaret E. Grosh

    World Bank Publications 2008; US$ 34.99

    Safety nets are noncontributory transfer programs targeted to the poor or vulnerable. They play important roles in social policy.

    World Bank Publications 2006; US$ 24.99
