Overview

Development with a Human Face presents retrospective studies of ten developing countries that have demonstrated successful health and educational development over the last thirty to forty years despite low incomes. Half of them have combined rapid economic growth with social achievement, while the others have experienced slower growth, interrupted by periods of economic decline. However, as illustrated here, all have achieved sustained improvement in mortality reduction and educational levels, providing valuable guidance for other developing countries seeking to replicate these successful social experiments.

A timely, unprecedented antidote to development pessimism that combines valuable cross-regional comparisons with region-specific studies, this book will interest policy-makers and government officials in developing countries, international agencies, development specialists, and journalists. It will also enhance graduate-level courses in development economics and development studies.
