Summary

Summary

This volume examines the usefulness of neo-liberal theory and prescription for tackling problems in such areas as agriculture, industry, education, and health, as well as its effectiveness in dealing with issues impacting the rural poor and women. The work goes on to assess the neo-liberal record on trade and financial and structural adjustment policies, and its lack of attention to political and strategic issues which tend to determine the ultimate viability of these or any other attempts at policy reform.
