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 Drawing on the author's rich original research, whilst expertly condensing published and unpublished material, From Recipients to Donors is an essential critical analysis and review for anyone interested in development, aid and international relations.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 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 'With the international aid system in a turbulent transition, Emma Mawdsley's excellent book on the so-called new donors from the South could not have come at a better time. Her comprehensive analysis enables the reader to understand the role of emerging powers as they shape the future of international development cooperation beyond a western-dominated OECD-DAC.' Thomas Fues, senior researcher and head of Training Department, German Development Institute 'Emma Mawdsley provides a brilliant overview and perceptive analysis of the rise of the non-DAC donors and its implications for aid and development. This is an important and timely text.' Vicky Randall, emeritus professor, University of Essex 'The rise of China, India, Brazil and other "emerging" powers is challenging a development assistance system long dominated by wealthy industrialized countries. Emma Mawdsley's new book is the best guide yet to these changes. Equally adept with the language of theory and of practice, Mawdsley draws a smart, careful and nuanced portrait of a brave new world of donors and development partners. Powerful, well-researched and sensitive to the complex realities, this is the right book at just the right time. Anyone wanting to understand the complex new geographies of aid and development cooperation must read this book.' Professor Deborah Brautigam, American University
