The absence of an accessible and credible justice and governance system not only adversely impinges on citizens fundamental rights but also regards growth and development.

There are 50 million children not attending primary school in South Asia. Another 40 per cent drop out of school every year. Yet, despite the fact that South Asia has emerged as the most illiterate region in the world, universal primary education for all in the next five years is not a utopian vision but an achievable reality. Police-makers not only can, but must, act now to end the region's shameful neglect of basic education. This is the central message that emerges from the 1998 Report on Human Development in South Asia.

It is argued that the commonalities in the aid experience of Tanzania and Bangladesh originate in the nature of the aid relationship between donors and aid recipients which has compromised the efficacy of aid and the sustainability of the development process.

This book gives names and faces to some of the world's poorest people, the inhabitants of a Bangladesh village. Although no microcosm can perfectly mirror the whole, an in depth exploration of one place can reveal the human dimensions of the larger picture. The authors lived at Katni, a typical Bangladesh village, in a hut they built themselves to find out what life at the margin in the Third World meant.
