Third World Development: A Basic Needs Approach


All aspects of the basic needs approach to development are considered in the various chapters of this volume: issues, implications, impact, planning and policy, and requisite technology, among others. The conflict between basic needs and comprehensive development approaches are explored. Both theoretical models and case studies outline and analyze the thorny issues inherent to the basic needs approach to development. The full range of contemporary theory and exerience is addressed in detail within the seventeen essays collected in this volume.
