Arguing that several orthodox adjustment policies are still incongruent with long-term development in Africa, this book goes on to discuss a development strategy which could lead to a much awaited economic recovery and improvement in social conditions in Africa in the 1990s drawing its conclusions from a general theoretical discussion of the matter and the results of five specific national case studies carried out in Burkina Faso, Niger, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Giovanni Andrea Cornia is the co-author or co-editor of "The Impact of World Recession on Children", "Adjustment With a Human Face" and "Children and the Transition to the Market Economy". Rolph Van der Hoeven is the author of "Planning for Basic Needs: A Soft Option or a Solid Policy?", co-author of "Basic Needs in Development Planning" and co-editor of "World Recession and Global Interdependence".
