East Timor: Development Challenges for the World's Newest Nation
Hal Hill Joao M. Saldanha
| Price: $ 36
East Timor will shortly become the world¿s newest independent nation. However, the challenges facing an independent East Timor are particularly acute. It is not only one of the poorest nations on earth but the terrible events of 1999 have also destroyed much of the country¿s buildings and infrastructure, as well as the nation¿s bureaucratic and commercial capacity. Thus, the decisions and the policy framework adopted in the early years by the leaders of this new nation will be critical.
East Timor: Development Challenges for the World¿s Newest Nation is the most up-to-date and authoritative book on East Timor¿s development potential. An original work written by experts and well-known specialists in the field, it assembles all the latest information about the economy, assesses future policy options, and draws on lessons of international experience for this new nation. It is perhaps the only book about East Timor with this coverage and will be invaluable to those who are interested in developments in the region.
Jointly published with the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore.
