Published in 1986. Development historian Maggie Black describes the evolution of ideas about how to attack hunger and poverty in the third world, the heroic endeavours made and the triumphs and disillusionments of their well-intentioned practitioners. She reaches beyond the growth of UNICEF and international aid to present the human face to all the energy, goodwill, science and effort expended in trying to build a better future for children the world over.
