Focusing on the region's economic development, the evolution of the international development agenda, and the story of ADB itself, Banking on the Future of Asia and the Pacific raises several key questions: What are the outstanding features of regional development to which ADB had to respond? How has the bank grown and evolved inchanging circumstances? How did ADB's successive leaders promote reforms while preserving continuity with the efforts of their predecessors? ADB has played an important role in the transformation of Asia and the Pacific the past 50 years. As ADB continues to evolve and adapt to the region's changing development landscape, the experiences highlighted in this book can provide valuable insight on how best to serve Asia and the Pacific in the future.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The bank's history also has important lessons for the future." - Adva Saldinger, Devex

"The big contributors here have been China and India, but this can be generalised to say that Asia has been far more successful than Latin America or Africa in this transformation. This volume tells not only the story of the ADB, but the story of that success." - Dr. Stephen Grenville, The Interpreter

'"Banking on the Future of Asia and the Pacific: 50 Years of the Asian Development Bank, by Peter McCawley, is highly readable as a guide to the history of Asia's postwar economic development as well as a history of the ADB." - Anthiny Rowley, The Business Times (Singapore)

"A good read for all those interested in the region's economic progress and its growth potential." - Aamir Ashraf, The News International (Pakistan)
