Synopsis: Freedom From Want traces the evolution of BRAC from it beginnings as a small relief operation in Bangladesh into what is arguably the largest and most successful social experiment in the developing world.

Ranging from distant villages in Bangladesh to New York s financial district, from war-torn Afghanistan to the plains of eastern Africa, Ian Smillie s book part adventure story, part lesson in development economics, and part examination of excellence in management describes one of the world s most remarkable success stories, one that has transformed disaster into development. Smillie shows us how social enterprise can trump corruption, and how purpose, innovation, and clear thinking can overcome the most entrenched injustices.

About the Author: Ian Smillie is, among numerous other projects, associated with the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University and research coordinator for Partnership Africa Canada s Diamonds and Human Security Project. He has served during his distinguished career as executive director of CUSO (Canadian University Service Overseas) and he was a founder of Inter Pares.
