A Samaritan State Revisited
Historical Perspectives on Canadian Foreign Aid
A Samaritan State Revisited brings together emerging and leading scholars to reflect on the history of Canada’s overseas aid and interrogate the many complex factors that affect future aid development.
The first collection to explore Canada’s aid history with this level of detail, these essays extend from the 1950s to the present and cover Canadian aid to all regions of the Global South. Drawing together a unique synthesis of governmental and non-governmental perspectives, A Samaritan State Revisited provides a clear and readily accessible explanation of the forces that have shaped Canadian foreign aid policy.
A Samaritan State Revisited will both act as a signpost, marking what has been accomplished (historiographically) so far, and serve as a valuable reference point as the task of developing the history of Canadian aid?in all its manifestations and complexity?continues.
