Analyzes difficulties encountered by Guinea in the wake of a World Bank-sponsored structural adjustment program in the mid-1980s, focusing on the agricultural sector. Looks at factors such as poor donor coordination, political challenges to the state, and difficult international economic conditions to explain the initial failure of the reform program, and discusses prospects for the new approach to adjustment promoted by the World Bank in Africa in the 1990s. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
