Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Robert Walters makes a useful contribution to our understanding of foreign aid by summarizing and comparing the use of foreign aid 'as an instrument of foreign policy' by the United States and the Soviet Union. . . . Walters' book is the best comprehensive comparison available.”
—Journal of Economic History

“Robert S. Walters' book is a thorough and thoughtful study of American and Soviet economic assistance programs (trade and aid) to the less developed countries. Focusing on the donor, as opposed to the recipient, nations, he compares and contrasts the two programs in terms of motivation, scope, and administration.”
—Journal of American History

“The book itself is extremely readable and well put together. It preserves a sense of balance. . . as a closely reasoned and well-researched analysis of both programmes.”
—International Affairs
