The three volumes reviewed here are dealing with challenging and problematic areas concerning foreign aid. All three discuss to a various degree, the powers and hidden agendas in the donor – recipient relationships, the emergence of new donors in the mar- ketplace of aid and foreign aid as a tool to reach donors’ domestic goals. They all emphasis that the new, global geo-political landscape changes aid relations in signifi- cant ways, especially after ‘the war on terror’.
