Editorial Review

This book discusses trends in international assistance from the perspectives of economics, politics, and social development over the past few years. It also offers penetrating insights and analyses on the way the changing environments in the international community have a great impact on developments in assistance work. Both present and future crucial issues are covered. This book is not only a most valuable contribution to the field of international cooperation and development, but it is also a must-read for anyone interested in this area.

I think that international assistance is a very important issue to the international community, which also includes Japan and Taiwan. Not only should international cooperation and development workers have a comprehensive understanding of their work, but I also believe that the general public should be interested in learning more about this issue.

This book was originally written as a reference for JICA workers. It was published in Japan in 2003 because people outside of JICA in Japan wanted to have a better understanding of the theoretical backgrounds and trends in international cooperation and development that this book examined. It is gratifying that this book has been translated into Chinese and published by TaiwanICDF. JICA's research can now be widely read in Taiwan.
