For over five decades, huge sums of money and other forms of assistance have littered the continent of Africa. With so much “goodwill” but so little positive results to show forth, many people around the world have been questioning aid effectiveness.This book is a short analysis of the impact foreign aid (and other forms of foreign intervention) has had and its future in Africa, with particular reference to Ghana. The book also re-introduces to readers the culture-development argument from a Ghanaian point of view since development encompasses every aspect of the people it targets. Nathan Andrews offers an account of Ghana''s experience under the Structural Adjustment Program and the impact of foreign assistance received during this regime. The book aims at the general public who are interested in the socio-economic aspects of Africa, particularly students seeking to understand the context of Ghana''s development. It is brief, precise and straight to the point; and it could also be of benefit to both policy makers and development practitioners both in Ghana and abroad who might be thinking of finding alternative explanations to why foreign aid has failed so far in most places.
