Book Description

This book considers the nature of change at the World Bank, exploring both the external impetous for change, and the impact of the Bank's internal organization and culture. The author's findings are supported by detailed case studies of three of the Bank's most important new agendas:
* private sector development
* participation
* governance

Reviews

'...a very interesting, professional and well-conducted study, with conclusions convincingly related to painstakingly assembled evidence. Adjectives like thoughtful, fair-minded, well-informed, and judicious sprinkle my notes...this is an excellent piece of work.' - Tony Killick, Development and Change June 2001
