Book Review: Sophal Ear, 2012. Aid Dependence in Cambodia: How Foreign Assistance Undermines Democracy. New York: Columbia University Press.
I suppose it is rare to pick up a book and find that the author was doing similar research to that of the reader, at about the same time. While I interviewed many NGO and government officials, as well as academics in Cambodia, my focus was more on poor villages and slums in Cambodia. Professor Ear was more focused on interviews with NGO and government officials, as well as business people. Despite differing interview targets, our findings about conditions in Cambodia today are almost identical. Cambodia is a country with an extremely corrupt government where little is being done to achieve sustained and evenly spread economic development.
