Half a century after President Truman launched the western world on an assault on hunger and misery in the Third World, over a billion people still live in abject poverty. International aid, and its organs such as the World Bank, can claim only limited success and in some parts of the world, especially Africa, they must acknowledge failure. William Ryrie, unlike some critics of the effort, starts from a position of sympathy with the objective, but insists that the record must be analyzed with ruthless honesty Ryrie argues that a new intellectual basis for aid must be found and the development task redefined. This line of thought leads him to some novel and provocative conclusions.
