These essays detail, among many stories of development in the 1990s, how China and India lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty, while Russia collapsed- how Bosnia and Herzegovina and Mozambique remade their war-ravaged economies- and how Thailand, Turkey, and Argentina fell into financial crisis. These remarkable stories, told in first-person by the country directors who were there to witness them, provide candid assessments of development in the 1990swhat succeeded, what failed, and what lessons emerged. This book is part of a larger effort undertaken by the World Bank to understand the development experience of the 1990s, an extraordinary eventful decade. Each of the projects three volumes serves a different purpose. Economic Growth in the 1990s provides comprehensive analysis of the decades development experience, while Development Challenges in the 1990s offers insights on the practical concerns faced by policymakers.
