'Emma Mawdsley has written a rigorous, original and compelling account of the changing landscapes of aid and development cooperation. From Recipients to Donors is simply the best available account we have of these shifting geopolitical realities.'
Professor Stuart Corbridge, London School of Economics

From Recipients to Donors examines the emergence, or re-emergence, of a large number of nations as partners and donors in international development, from global powers such as Brazil, China and India, to Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia, to former socialist states such as Poland and Russia. The impact of these countries in international development has grown sharply, and as a result they have become a subject of intense interest and analysis.

This unique book explores the range of opportunities and challenges this phenomenon presents for poorer countries and for development policy, ideology and governance. Drawing on the author’s rich original research, whilst expertly condensing published and unpublished material, From Recipients to Donors is an essential critical analysis and review for anyone interested in development, aid and international relations.

Emma Mawdsley is a senior lecturer in the Geography Department, University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Newnham College. Her recent work on development politics focuses on the ‘rising powers’, and includes a co-authored book (with Gerard McCann) on contemporary India-Africa relations, and publications on China and Africa. She recently led a project examining public perceptions of development cooperation in China, India, Poland, Russia and South Africa.
