This book presents an informed, wide-ranging and critical account of the impact of foreign aid on Bangladesh's economy and society. The author shows the distortive consequences that, in practice, aid has on his country's path of development, productive forces, and process of class formation. He demonstrates conclusively that Bangladesh cannot continue to rely on aid as its principal strategy of development.
