The book shows, through in-depth case studies, how some low income countries have made enormous strides in overcoming problems of adult literacy, lack of schooling, high child mortality, rapid population growth, mass poverty and gender inequalities. With contributions from outstanding scholars, the book analyses the experiences with social development and public policy of Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cuba, Kerala, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Using a holistic approach, it draws lessons and evaluates their relevance for other countries interested in emulating their achievements.
