"The terms ""overseas aid"" and ""international development"" mask confusion, contradiction, and deceit. All too often what passes for development improves life for the better-off, while actively hurting the very people the venture was meant to support. Black argues that in order to truly defend the interests of the poor we need more realism, less hypocrisy, and a more accurate picture of what is happening in development's name."
