The current debate in Foreign Aid
Foreign aid has been an area of active scholarly investigation since the end of the Second World War, but particularly since the early 1950s when a large number of the erstwhile colonies became independent.   Few areas of public policy involving the developed and developing countries have aroused more passion and ideological debate than foreign aid.

Policies, Plans, and People: Foreign Aid and Health Development Policies, Plans, and People:
Foreign Aid and Health Development

(Comparative Studies of Health Systems and Medical Care, 17)

by Judith Justice
Paperback (1990)

"This book identifies one reason the failure to consider sociocultural information in planning health care (for the enormous and chronic gap between policy-making and programme implementation that exists in Nepal.    It will be extremely useful for anthropologists, international health professionals, scholars and planners who are interested in the development process.    The major theme of how to use anthropology in planning is relevant far beyond the Nepali or disciplinary boundaries."

Michael Maren shows that the international aid industry is a big business more concerned with winning its next big government contract than helping needy people.  The problem isn't a lack of charity missions in the Third World, but that the best intentions of these idealists are often inadvertently destruction.
