About this book

This book argues that the World Bank, far from being a unitary actor, is fundamentally plural, internally fragmented and dispersed, with cascading chains of delegation, authority and controls, and with considerable discretion delegated to the staff.

About the authors

XU YI-CHONG and PATRICK WELLER are professors of politics at the Centre for Governance and Public Policy at Griffith University, USA.

Reviews

"Providing a rich description of many aspects of the World Bank, with details on internal operations that specialists may value, the authors posit that the World Bank is not well described by conventional principal-agent or bureaucratic models. Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice
