Interorganizational Relations and Effectiveness in Planning and Administration in Developing Countries Towards a Strategy for Improving the Performance of Develoment Policy Organizations

Author: Njoh, Ambe


"One would never guess from the title of this book that it contains information and ideas that address contemporary urban and rural development issues from technical as well as non-technical perspectives that are often missing in many books written by academics. Njoh weaves real world development problems with theoretical underpinnings in such a way that this volume will appeal not only to academics in universities and colleges but mid-management personnel in developing countries and development experts in agencies of donor countries. . . Njoh presents a model approach which adds something original to the debate. . . . This book is highly recommended for serious scholars of development in the developing nations of the world and for mid-management personnel who are charged with the responsibilities of building capacities for effective and efficient functioning of institutions. Planners, developers, scholars and students of development should read this book." - Valentine Udoh James, Director, African Studies Program, Kalamazoo College
