Aid Without Development
Samia Altaf
Price: $ 19.95

Aid Without Development is a remarkable insider's account of what really goes on in the world of international development assistance. Samia Altaf, senior official in the Department of Health in Washington DC, was caught up as a consultant in a huge World Bank-funded project to improve the abysmal conditions in the social sector in Pakistan. The project ended in much-publicized disaster -- corruption, controversy, non-delivery, and an official fraud inquiry. This book is her story. Reading almost like a novel, at times hilarious, at others bringing tears to one's eyes, it is an engrossing and honest eyewitness account of why international aid fails more often than it succeeds in developing countries.
