The African Development Bank: Problems of International Cooperation

By Kwame Donkoh Fordwor
Pergamon Press, 1981
342 pp. $30.00
Purchase

The former President of the African Development Bank graphically recounts his personal saga of successful institution-building, set against a backdrop of international bureaucratic intrigue. Although he guided the Bank skillfully through the controversial process of opening up its membership to non-African countries, he was shortly thereafter abruptly dismissed by the Bank's directors. Venality and stupidity vie with wisdom and competence in this African morality play; unfortunately, as Fordwor tells it, the good guy finishes last.
