Reviews

"This annual compilation of world development statistics is the most up-to-date, comprehensive print resource on factors impacting international economics and the political landscape. Divided into six subject categories, development trends recorded annually since 1990–including population dynamics, child labor, poverty levels, and education opportunities–are tracked in major First World and Third World countries. Short, persuasive essays on inaction's eventual cost are a valuable and instructive component. Well organized and meticulous, the content is also available on a single or multi-user CD-ROM. Highly recommended."- School Library Journal
