The Wealth of Poor Nations
The Wealth of Poor Nations
By C. Suriyakumaran
St. Martin's, 1984, 315 pp

This interesting work by a veteran development planner from Sri Lanka is partly a history and partly an analysis of why the dreams of development that the author dates from the 1940s have become the soberer realities of today. He adds a number of prescriptions, some broad and others worked out in great detail to deal with particular problems that fascinate the author.
