Enlightened Aid

U.S. Development as Foreign Policy in Ethiopia

Amanda Kay McVety

  • Challenges the idea that foreign aid promotes development
  • Offers a unique blend of intellectual and diplomatic history
  • Focuses on Ethiopia, which is a key player in the story from the very beginning; it is not simply a recipient of Western ideas and money—it challenges those ideas and it manipulates the distribution of that money
  • Presents the reader with a sampling of the best new ideas about development
