About the book:

An informed and widely acclaimed critique of the World Bank and its destructive impact on the environment, as well as a questioning of the underlying assumptions and goals of economic development.

"A hard-hitting and authoritative work, useful and provocative." --Christian Science Monitor

"A detailed and thought-provoking look at an important subject from the viewpoint of a passionate advocate." --New York Times Book Review

"You don't have to be a card-carrying green to benefit from this chronicle of how the World Bank became a powerful force for the destruction of the natural environment." --Boston Globe

"This badly needed analysis exposes the destructive alliance between the bank and national governments that, in the name of progress, has plundered natural resources and impoverished millions . . . . [Rich's] merciless evaluation should help provoke an overdue debate about the bank's future." --Business Week

"Rich . . . is right in his criticism of the bank s lending practices on many counts." --Financial Times, London

"A lively synthesis of previously unseen Bank documents, human rights reports, journal articles, economic history, and interviews with former and current Bank staffers." --Village Voice Literary Supplement
