Investing in research is a long-term and risky proposition , according to one of the ten papers in this collection. Dedicated to agricultural research in developing countries, it provides one of the most up-to-date overviews of the art, and science, of evaluation. Born of an initiative taken by the International Service for National Agricultural Research (ISNAR) to pool the experiences and opinions of leading evaluators in the South, Evaluation in Developing Countries looks at how evaluation techniques have rightly become an integral part of research management. Its papers cover eastern, central and southern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, India and the Philippines, and address key issues in capacity building in planning, monitoring and evaluation. Not surprisingly for a journal of this quality, its language is none too accessible, and it is not easy for the non-specialist to learn how the mind of the evaluation community works. But if you are part of that community, you cannot pass this work by. Evaluation in Developing Countries: Experiences with Agricultural Research and Development, special issue of Knowledge, Technology, and Policy, Volume 11, Number 4, Winter 1999. 192 pp. Transaction Periodicals Consortium, Rutgers University, 35 Berrue Circle, Piscataway, NJ 08854-8042, USA
