This book, first published in 1986, examines the American economic aid that was a vital factor in enabling Britain’s success in the Second World War. Whilst Lend-Lease did keep the British war effort alive, the agreement was always a source of great friction between the two countries. This book argues that although Lend-Lease solved Britain’s wartime supply problems, the price was the acceptance of a series of burdens that seriously aggravated the country’s long-term economic decline.

The dynamics in the international system have led to aid policy shifts from just relief assistance towards attempts to support development in emergency situations. Aid Policy in War-Torn Countries deals with the dilemma of whether development can be pursued in conflict situations and how it can and should be done. The importance and interest of the research rests essentially on its apparent paradoxical character. Author Mafalda Duarte divides the research into two parts. The theoretical focuses on identifying the dynamics of the new international system leading, and arguments supporting the shift in terms of the aid paradigm from just relief assistance towards attempts to support development in emergency situations. Part two, the empirical, uses the opinions and arguments of the Angolan population sample to determine whether they believe in the possibilities and ways of pursuing development in Angola while in a conflict situation. The window left open at the end of the research relates to the importance of analyzing the implications of the increasing number of non-nation-state intermediaries for all types of development cooperation.

The Spanish Civil War created a conflict for Americans who preferred that the United States remain uninvolved in foreign affairs. Despite the country's isolationist tendencies, opposition to the rise of fascism across Europe convinced many Americans that they had to act in support of the Spanish Republic. While much has been written about the war itself and its international volunteers, little attention has been paid to those who coordinated these relief efforts at home. American Relief Aid and the Spanish Civil War tells the story of the political campaigns to raise aid for the Spanish Republic as activists pushed the limits of isolationist thinking. Those concerned with Spain’s fate held a range of political convictions (including anarchists, socialists, liberals, and communists) with very different understandings of what fascism was. Yet they all agreed that fascism’s advance must be halted. With labor strikes, fund-raising parties, and ambulance tours, defenders of Spain in the United States sought to shift the political discussion away from isolation of Spain’s elected government and toward active assistance for the faltering Republic. Examining the American political organizations affiliated with this relief effort and the political repression that resulted as many of Spain’s supporters faced the early incarnations of McCarthyism’s trials, Smith provides new understanding of American politics during the crucial years leading up to World War II. By also focusing on the impact the Spanish Civil War had on those of Spanish ethnicity in the United States, Smith shows how close to home the seemingly distant war really hit.
