About This Book

Reissue with 2010 postcript of the 2008 study of violence, corruption and other forms of economic gangsterism which in the past four or five decades have accompanied or followed much of the foreign aid granted to promote aconomic development. Events in Kenya, Indonesia, Bangladesh, the US, Italy, China and other First World and Third World countries are used to demonstrate the way in which a dark world negates efforts to promote social and economic development. Possible constructive remedial measures are explored. Reference notes and index.
