                               "I hope this book is widely read …"
                                                       - Jan Pronk, former Assistant General-Secretary of the UN

One and a half billion people live in abject poverty today. Thousands die daily and millions annually because of poverty-related conditions. The World Bank is the most important institution on Earth dedicated to alleviating poverty. Yet there is widespread belief it has often failed. There is also little understanding of what the Bank is, how it works and why it is so important. The World Bank Unveiled is an insider's view like no other. While previous accounts of the Bank have been written by high-powered economists and academics, The World Bank Unveiled is written for those who are not familiar with the Bank, international economics or Washington politics. "Compelling" and "highly readable" was how one former Bank powerbroker described the text. The book explores the structural inefficiencies and monolithic culture that reduce the Bank's efficiency and effectiveness. It also suggests reforms to help the organization. The World Bank Unveiled may be the most important book ever written about the World Bank.
