Both retired bureaucrats

Review:

`the introduction gives a nice summary of the concerns of the west with development in the third world.'
G K Leiten, Economic and Politcial Weekly, August 12, 2000.

`Zaidi has worked hard to assess, in eleven chapters, the probable impact of neo-liberalism and the rolling back of the state in different institutions in Pakistan. He has succeeded extremely well.'
G K Leiten, Economic and Politcial Weekly, August 12, 2000.

`This is a well-written book, which not only provides information on Pakistan [a country which is some years ahead of India in terms of tuning its policy t the exigencies imposed by Washington] but also involves an incisive analysis of the development discourse around devolution and NGOs.'
G K Leiten, Economic and Politcial Weekly, August 12, 2000.

Zaidi has successfully shown the the actual working of international economics. In a very lucid manner, Akbar has been able to to sketch out a brief history of global economic development and the role the West has played in this regard. The eleven chapters of the book in fact, are individual
articles and research papers by the author. Professionally abridged and edited, they have lost their individual capacity in the book where they have developed a collective momentum to keep the reader engrossed. A highly readable book, indeed, on an issue of paramount importance to the thinking souls
of the 1990s. Humair Ishtiaq - Star Weekend, May 29th 1999.
