Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lewis & Kanji have given us the most comprehensive overview of the work of development NGOs produced to date and this book contains more practical insights into the activities of development NGOs than available in any other single text. Wonderfully sensitive to the diversity of NGOs, the book is full of nuanced summaries and perceptive insights. It should become required reading for every development NGO from the Chief Executive down to the newest intern." Dr Gerard Clarke, Swansea University, UK

"This essential introduction to NGOs will be of interest to both students and practitioners. The authors provide an accessible and scholarly account of what remains one of the most significant development phenomena of recent decades." Diana Mitlin, University of Manchester, UK
