The author, Dr Yash Tandon, executive director of the South Centre, an intergovernmental think-tank of the developing countries, argues that ending aid dependence should be at the top of the political agenda of all countries. This will specially affect the present donor-dependent countries, in particular the poorer and vulnerable countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Caribbean.

Tandon cautions against the aid colonialism of the rich donor countries. Developing countries dependent on aid can liberate themselves from the aid that pretends to be developmental but is not – but it requires a radical shift in their strategy.

Challenging the misdirected policies of the last 30 years regarding the South's responsibility to develop itself rather than expect the North to carry the burden, this book offers alternative concepts and paradigms of development for policy makers and peoples' movements on a wide range of issues. It invites readers to "dare to think differently" and be aware of what globalization has turned into in recent years.

Mozambique has been seen by donors as a success story of peace, stability and growth since the end of its devastating war in 1992. Indeed, it has become increasingly important to the international community as one of the few successes in Africa. Donors have invested a substantial amount of resources and effort in support of Mozambique's economic and political performance, and are understandably committed to sustaining it for as long as possible. Mozambique continues to be highly aid dependent (see Figure 1), but is considered as a model by the Bretton Woods institutions, having consistently met most donor demands, while at the same time growing at an official average rate of about 8% per year since 1997 (EIU 2006). During the same period, poverty declined, but at a much slower rate. Given its privileged status among donors, Mozambique has also become a model and a testing ground for so called "new aid modalities", such as sector and General Budget Support (GBS), in the context of the shifting international debates around aid effectiveness, enshrined in the Paris Declaration of March 2005 (OECD 2005). This has included an innovative mechanism for monitoring donor performance on harmonisation and alignment of their support to the country, called the Programme Aid Partners' Performance Assessment Framework (PAP's PAF), discussed in more detail later in this paper.

The new growth patterns and shifting wealth in the world economy fundamentally alter the basis for Western aid. This book demonstrates how Western development aid has been transformed over time, in particular in the 1990s, when the West enjoyed world hegemony. Western aid, once a helping hand to other countries' development strategies, has increasingly been seen as a tool for large-scale attempts to transform states, societies and minds according to Western models. The authors claim that this has made aid more complex and less useful to poor countries in their fight against poverty. Emerging economies, such as China, have demonstrated that other paths to growth and poverty alleviation are available. They are attractive partners in development, offering collaboration without paternalism. Most poor countries experience growth, and are able to finance development with homegrown resources or in collaboration with non-Western partners. Having other options, they may increasingly challenge and reject Western aid if it is accompanied with goals of transforming the recipients based on Western blueprints. The authors claim that aid has a role in the fight against poverty in the future, but only if Western donors are willing to adapt to the new world order, leave paternalism behind and rethink their role in development. Donors must change the way they relate to poor sovereign states, redefine the meaning of 'development', and reinvent aid to make it simpler and more manageable.

Like many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Rwanda is highly dependent upon flows of external assistance. The convergence of donors around Rwanda's poverty reduction strategy since the late 1990s, combined with international commitments to improve aid effectiveness, have both enhanced and hindered Rwandan "ownership" of policy processes. Rises in direct budget support and sectoral support have increased collaboration between government and donors in the preparation and implementation of policy. A complex aid management system has been established to coordinate this collaboration, over which the government has sought to assert more control. This gives a semblance of greater convergence between government and donor priorities, and aid to Rwanda is rising. However, the RPF-led government which has been in power since 1994 also has its own policy priorities which sometimes clash with donor perspectives. The government has held a steady line on issues such as internal and regional security, national unity, governance and economic development. Aid dependence does not prevent the government from forging its own path in the face of donor hesitancy. The handling of refugees, resettlement, justice, elections and regional security provide examples of areas where the government has pursued sometimes controversial policies. Some donors have frozen aid or scaled back programmes as a response. However, other donors have been supportive and aid flows overall have rarely suffered. This divergence amongst donors provides one avenue through which the government is able to negotiate policy space and enhance its ownership. Clever use of the moral authority gained from ending the genocide, the legacy of the genocide and international guilt, and the language of the prevailing norms of international development also enhances the RPF-led government's control over policy priorities wh ile ensuring a continuing supply of external assistance. The Rwandan case highlights the effects of an aid system which aims at increasing local ownership but which leads to heightened external entanglement in inte rnal policy processes, while at the same time demonstrating how an aid-dependent government can maintain policy autonomy.

The book examines the Anglo-American relationship in the early postwar period through a case study of the American military assistance programme launched in 1949. It analyses the degree and changing nature of interdependence between the two states under this programme from 1949 to 1956. It focuses in particular on the tensions in US policy between Congress and the Administration, the differing conceptions of the Anglo-American relationship held by the two institutions and the problems this posed for Britain.

Foreign aid, mostly from industrialized countries to developing countries, has been going on for 50 years, and some Third World countries depend on it to a remarkable extent. Though its purpose is ostensibly selfless and benign, as this introduction to the difficult issues surrounding aid show, it is the focus of considerable controversy. Aid is an issue of great concern, both financially and morally. This book suggests ways in which aid can be made less of a problem, and more of a solution.

Is China a rogue donor, as some media pundits suggest? Or is China helping the developing world pave a pathway out of poverty, as the Chinese claim? In the last few years, China's aid program has leapt out of the shadows. Media reports about huge aid packages, support for pariah regimes, regiments of Chinese labor, and the ruthless exploitation of workers and natural resources in some of the poorest countries in the world sparked fierce debates. These debates, however, took place with very few hard facts. China's tradition of secrecy about its aid fueled rumors and speculation, making it difficult to gauge the risks and opportunities provided by China's growing embrace. This well-timed book, by one of the world's leading experts, provides the first comprehensive account of China's aid and economic cooperation overseas. Deborah Brautigam tackles the myths and realities, explaining what the Chinese are doing, how they do it, how much aid they give, and how it all fits into their "going global" strategy. Drawing on three decades of experience in China and Africa, and hundreds of interviews in Africa, China, Europe and the US, Brautigam shines new light on a topic of great interest. China has ended poverty for hundreds of millions of its own citizens. Will Chinese engagement benefit Africa? Using hard data and a series of vivid stories ranging across agriculture, industry, natural resources, and governance, Brautigam's fascinating book provides an answer. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with China's rise, and what it might mean for the challenge of ending poverty in Africa.

Foreign Aid in South Asia examines the individual South Asian country experience in dealing with foreign aid. The articles in this book show that the effectiveness of foreign aid as a developmental tool over the last few decades has been mixed, and that the Paris Declaration of 2005 has brought about some improvement in aid ownership, harmonization, mainstreaming, utilization, etc. The book examines how emerging as well as less developed South Asian economies are adapting to these developments in the context of security issues, post-conflict rehabilitation/reconstruction, and so on. The book provides many lessons for designing an international framework for aid or international aid architecture through case studies, highlighting the future policy priorities for that country. For the very first time, focus is laid on Bhutan, Maldives and Afghanistan-the three least-documented countries in the region-besides discussing about India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

Aid Power and Politics delves into the political roots of aid policy, demonstrating how and why governments across the world use aid for global influence, and exploring the role it plays in present-day global governance and international relations. In reconsidering aid as part of international relations, the book argues that the interplay between domestic and international development policy works in both directions, with individual countries having the capacity to shape global issues, whilst at the same time, global agreements and trends, in turn, shape the political behaviour of individual countries. Starting with the background of aid policy and international relations, the book goes on to explore the behaviour of both traditional and emerging donors (the US, the UK, the Nordic countries, Japan, Spain, Hungary, Brazil, and the European Union), and then finally looks at some big international agendas which have influenced donors, from the liberal consensus on democracy and good governance, to gender equality and global health. Aid Power and Politics will be an important read for international development students, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, and for anyone who has ever wondered why it is that countries spend so much money on the well-being of non-citizens outside their borders.

"Dr. Ear argues that the international community has chosen to prioritize political stability above all other governance dimensions, and in so doing has traded a modicum of democracy for an ounce of security. Focusing on post-1993 Cambodia, Ear explores the unintended consequences in post-conflict environments of foreign aid. He chooses Cambodia both for personal reasons--which infuses an academic analysis with a compelling sense of urgency--and because it is one of the most aid-drenched countries in modern history. He tries to explain the relationship between Cambodia's aid dependence and its appallingly poor governance. He concludes that despite decades of aid, technical cooperation, four national elections, no open warfare, and some progress in some parts of the economy, Cambodia is one broken government away from disaster."--Publisher's description.
