Robert E. Wood is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Rutgers University, Camden, New Jersey.
"Robert Wood's From Marshall Plan to Debt Crisis is an excellent book, a fine piece of scholarship. The book integrates the development of a theoretical approach to international affairs with a careful and thorough treatment of important empirical material. while Wood focuses on the particular issue of aid, he connects the analysis of aid to broader issues of international political economy—development policy, power relations, the debt crisis. This is an extremely important book for anyone attempting to understand international political and economic affairs." —Arthur MacEwan, University of Massachusetts, Boston "Wood has written a compelling book that provides the historical and theoretical context to make sense of the complexities of the international debt crisis. The result is a major contribution to economic sociology that should be read by economists, political scientists, sociologists, and policy makers." —Fred Block, University of Pennsylvania
