Opis: Aid and Development - Myles Wickstead

There are many books about aid and development, but most of them either assume a good deal of prior knowledge about the subject, or are written to make the case for or against aid. The first part of this volume is intended to put aid and development into their historical and political context, beginning with the post-World War Two settlement, showing how they have been shaped by that context and in particular by the Cold War and the decolonisation process. It shows how the end of the Cold War led to new development priorities and a new aid compact with a much stronger emphasis on issues like governance, rights and democratisation, beginning with the countries of eastern and central Europe and then more generally. It traces the path by which the reduction of poverty has taken centre-stage as the key objective of aid and development over the past quarter of a century, and looks at priorities for a new set of Sustainable Development Goals that will provide the framework for aid and development efforts for the next 15 years. It looks at the shifting balance of global power, and suggests ways in which international institutions need to adjust to reflect that balance. The second part is a Compendium of key words and concepts mentioned in Part One, and further background on some of the major international organisations and institutions with a role in aid and development. One of the best things about Aid and Development: A Brief Introduction, by Myles Wickstead, is the user-friendly aid and devt coverformat: a 90 page basic introduction to the aid system from World War Two to the SDGs, followed by a 65 page compendium of 20 key words and concepts from aid effectiveness to the UN system ... He writes in the crisp, no frills style of ministerial briefings, guiding the reader through the bewildering labyrinth of the aid systems evolution ... as a succinct introduction to the evolving aid system, its [the book] hard to beat. Duncan Green, Oxfam 'From Poverty to Power' Blog This fills a real gap; it provides an invaluable and accessible introduction to the subject for students of international development, volunteers and members of NGOs Sir David Green, former Director Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) and the British Council This should be essential reading for every incoming government minister, civil servant and diplomat dealing with aid and development around the world, and for students of the subject. And certainly useful for journalists likely to find themselves covering these issues. Mike Wooldridge, BBC World Affairs CorrespondentPART ONE ; PART TWO
