National Interest and Foreign Aid

Front Cover
L. Rienner Publishers, 1995 - Asistencia econůmica - 221 pages
Seeking to advance the understanding of aid as a foreign-policy tool, National Interest and Foreign Aid provides a comparative, data-based evaluation of the varying roles served by the development assistance programs of four major donors: France, Japan, Sweden, and the United States. Although the focus of the book is on the 1980s, Hook also contrasts the on-going evolution of the four aid programs and assesses their adaptation to world politics beyond the Cold War. His analysis contributes to an enhanced appreciation not only of foreign aid, but of comparative foreign policy in the contemporary international system.
