Dinosaurs or Dynamos? explores how much, and what, they can really be expected to do. Both have extended their functions far beyond their original mandates, while their decision-making structures have remained basically unaltered, despite recent adaptations on the part of the World Bank." "The authors ask, what need is there for these two 'multilateral development institutions' in the next century? Which tasks in promoting world development can they undertake that others cannot? To who are these institutions politically accountable, who sets their agendas and are they credible given financial constraints? Dinosaurs or Dynamos? is an essential guide for those working within the international community, non-governmental organizations, governments and students of development, economics, politics and international relations."--Jacket." ;
