A Look Inside
Main Description
An examination of recent developments in socio-economic reform in developing countries with special reference to Zambia, whose political, economic and social system has come under pressure.
Long Description
This book is written in the wake of economic, social policy and public administrative reform in Zambia. It thoroughly examines the attempts and potential pitfalls of the reform programme as well as its impact on Zambian society. The general conclusion reached by the contributors to this volume is that while the reform programme is a necessary condition for economic rebirth its details require careful consideration in order to ensure it has the desired socio-economic impact on the people of Zambia. This should also serve as an important example to other countries embarking on similar programmes of reform.
