Издательство: Lawrence And Wishart Ltd

Book DescriptionThis provocative and challenging work examines the way in which much third-world aid, far from contributing to the prosperity of recipient countries, helps to sustain global relations of domination and subordination. Based on the author'spersonal experiences as a volunteer in Nicaragua and in-depth interviews with development and aid workers, this study focuses on the role that race plays in development and the impact of the unacknowledged and often unconscious assumptions of Western whites. By scrutinizing the motivations of those with good intentions, the role and influence of whiteness in the developing world is brought to the forefront.
