Brechin draws upon organizational sociology to explain why three international organizations - the World Bank, the Forestry Department of the Food and Agriculture Organization, and CARE-USA - performed so differently while promoting rural development forestry projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Focusing on the period from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, Brechin argues that the unique organizational nature of each agency - shaped by internal characteristics as well as external pressures - influenced its ability to promote certain kinds of development programs.
