From the Publisher'Certainly for me, it is a unique source and I would guess that for the entire world community interested in international institutions and the world of development, the book will be a mandatory reference work.'
James D. Wolfensohn, President, The World Bank Group (in his Foreword to Volume II of this book).
'Mr. Shihata describes in detail the efforts the Bank has made to respond to the criticisms [addressed to its work], and displays a sophisticated grasp of both the necessity for a public institution to look beyond IRR [internal rate of return] calculations, and the powerful resistance that must be overcome if the Bank is to provide long-term assistance to entire populations rather than short-term benefits to elites.'
Jan Paulson (in his review of Volume II of this book)
'…[t]his book provides "chapter and verse" by an insider-with his unique insights developed during the many years he has been involved in the actual operations of this remarkable institution.'
