Enlightened Aid

U.S. Development as Foreign Policy in Ethiopia

Amanda Kay McVety

  • A unique blend of intellectual and diplomatic history, McVety handles with equal seriousness both the economic and the political aspects of the history of US foreign aid.
  • The final chapter offers a way forward, presenting the reader with a sampling of the best new ideas about development.
