Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


The particular contribution of the Cambridge Conferences on Development was to gather together practical administrators and technical specialists in many fields so that they can examine together a particular problem in development strategy for the Third World. This 1971 volume selects some of the most important papers which were delivered during the 1960s, and presents them as a contribution to the discussion on how economic development could best be planned and advanced. Interspersed amongst the more technical papers are summaries and comments by Ronald Robinson summarising the consensus and divergence of views revealed in the conferences' debates throughout the decade. This book is unusual and valuable in providing the working experience of the practitioners themselves - the public servants, planners and advisers of the decade - in their task of making poor countries richer.
