Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
These essays by the founders of the informal World Bank discussion group on the ethics of development provide a rare insight into the mental life of a powerful multinational organization. Uncomfortable with the limited successes of the efforts by the Bank and other agencies to reduce poverty, the authors sought both reasons and direction in the light of their respective spiritual traditions: Hindu, Lutheran, Humanist, and Muslim. The result is four views of the current global crisis and four visions of a global future. The Hindu is perhaps the most compelling appeal for restraint and reordering of spending on the part of both rich and poor nations. The tone is broad and thoughtful. Worthwhile reading for anyone interested in international affairs and development.-- Mary Jane Ballou, Ford Fdn. Lib., New York
