The author provides detailed and original... more...

  • Toxic Aidby Sebastian Edwards

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 54.99

    For many years Tanzania was the darling of international aid agencies. During the 1970s it received more assistance per capita than any other nation in the world.
