In this study of the attempts to export the modern Western university, its ideas, and its form to the Third World, Daniel C. Levy examines the development assistance provided by the Ford Foundation, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the InterAmerican Development Bank and their relations with local partners in Latin America in the 1960s and 1970s. Levy considers the funders, how they selected partners, which countries and institutions were favored, and to what effect. Based on meticulous research and careful analysis, the book provides a detailed look at philanthropic assistance to the region during the era of modernization and development in Latin America. Daniel C. Levy is Distinguished Professor of Educational Administration and Policy Studies at the State University of New York at Albany. His book "Building the Third Sector" won the 1997 ARNOVA prize for best book.
