Foreign Aid: Theory and Practice in Southern Asia
Foreign Aid: Theory and Practice in Southern Asia
By Charles Wolf, Jr
Princeton University Press, 1960, 442 pp.

Mr. Wolf here tackles seriously an issue about which much has been said without producing much enlightenment, namely the relative shares that should be allocated to the military and economic sections in our foreign aid program in order to achieve optimum results. Using South and Southeast Asia as a testing ground, the book is both empirical and analytical, indeed in part fairly mathematical. A very substantial contribution.
