"[A]n insightful examination of the proposed Millennium Challenge Account (MCA)." --C. Kilby, Vassar College, Choice, 12/1/2003 "This book...provides a detailed analysis of the MCA. In particular, it suggests how MCA may be fashioned as an effective tool to rebuild US development policy." --Mak Arvin, Trent University, Ontario, Canada, Journal of Development Studies, 10/1/2003 "The authors discuss some important operational issues that shape the ability of the MCA to achieve its goals... The central concern informing the authors' recommendations is to effect a shift in U.S. development assistance away from a top-down, donor-driven approach to one that supports, and even encourages, recipient countires to design and implement their own development plans." --James Busumtwi-Sam, Simon Fraser University, International Journal, 1/1/2004 "The joint study by a multidisciplinary team of Brookings scholars offers an important in sight into how best to craft the MCA to make it an effective aid distributing and delivering mechanism that would both transform US policy on the poorest countries and enhance international poverty reduction efforts... The Other War is one of the most important recent contributions to the study of development aid practices and a valuable guide for policy-makers." --
