Summary: First published in 1987, this reissue explores contemporary United States foreign aid policies and thinking in the Reagan era. The author argues that aid policy is often confused as a result of bureaucratic decision-making processes. The book contrasts the experience of the many countries where aid-giving has produced unwished-for effects with the few countries where the desired results have occurred. The author concludes by arguing for a new approach to aid-giving by the United States.

CHOICE Review

Guess (Georgia State) presents a bureaucratic role conflict model of policy making in US foreign aid programs. The history of US aid programs to Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East serve as his illustrations. He has assembled a great deal of information; although most is elsewhere available-there are many footnotes-having it (and Guess's footnotes) in one place is convenient for the specialist. Published in small type by offset printing, his book suffers from lack of care in manuscript preparation, editing, and proofreading. Recommended for libraries in schools of public administration.-G.W. Thumm, Bates College
