This volume stands out in the literature on foreign aid because it includes contributions from eight policy representatives from a range of important donor and recipient countries - the United States, Japan, the Netherlands, Bolivia, Egypt, Bangladesh, El Salvador, and Poland. Timely in its assessment of the crisis and the transition in the foreign aid regime, the book provides a view from inside the policy process and imparts a researcher's perspective on the changing priorities for donors and recipients. The wide-ranging essays - most previously unpublished - aim to shed light on the changing political, economic, and regional geographies of aid at the end of the twentieth century.
