Inside Development in Latin America: A Report from the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Brazil

Synopsis

This optimistic view of three Latin American countries describes community health programs and rural extension projects through the people who do the work. They explain how credit is organized, describe the routines at health posts, and discuss crops and cooperatives. Here is powerful evidence of what can be accomplished when community-based development focuses on people and their everyday problems. Lang argues that local development is affordable, realistic, and irreplacable.
