This volume takes an in-depth look at how the World Bank and its mission have evolved and expanded since James D. Wolfensohn took over as president in 1995. The book begins by showing how Wolfensohn broadened the development agenda to incorporate the private sector, the Millennium Development Goals, reconstruction of post-conflict countries, country-owned development strategies, and the promotion of good governance. It then examines the Bank's strategy of forging and harnessing strategic partnerships with other nations on such critical issues as aid effectiveness and debt relief.
