What is surprising about these essays is not the insight and grace with which they are written—we have come to expect that—but the fact that nobody has expressed matters in quite this way before. John Kenneth Galbraith writes about what advice the poor nations (as, avoiding euphemism, he calls them) ought to offer to the more fortunate countries. In this little book there are essential lessons to ponder—for the governments of the rich countries, for those of the poor lands, and for the concerned citizens of both.
