Reinventing Aid

I am happy to announce that Reinventing Aid has been published by MIT Press.  Edited by Bill Easterly, it is a collection of essays (including one by Mari and me) that point the way toward a new approach to foreign aid.  

The introduction by Bill is by itself worth the price of the book.  I will use it the next time I teach a class on international development.  

Many of the individual chapters are also outstanding and are highly recommended for more advanced readers.  (Send me an email for recommendations.)
