Enlightened Aid

U.S. Development as Foreign Policy in Ethiopia

Amanda Kay McVety

  • The thesis challenges the idea that foreign aid promotes development
  • The book is 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
  • Ethiopia 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
  • The final chapter offers a way forward, presenting the reader with a sampling of the best new ideas about development
