Although the number of people in developing nations who are too poor to provide themselves with an adequate diet is rising, this is not reason to assume that such poverty is inevitable. Strategies that foster economic growth and include poor people in the growth process can be found in countries with such diverse political and economic systems as China, Korea, India and Pakistan. The situation is bleakest in Sub-Saharan Africa, where poor medical care, high birth rates, falling food production, little education, inefficient investment, and drought have contributed to political instability and growing poverty. Yet other areas, which had an equally bleak outlook not long ago, are now reducing poverty. The World Bank's experience is that economic growth is necessary for poverty reduction. However, the worst recession in over 40 years has left most developing nations with severe balance-of-payments problems. Regaining financial stability and then reviving economic growth have become urgent priorities. Official development assistance is essential for economic growth. These elements must be combined with more effective use of donor resources and programs that will accelerate growth and concentrate the increase in incomes among the poor. (Is)

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than two decades after his death, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s ideas - his call for racial equality, his faith in the ultimate triumph of justice, and his insistence on the power of nonviolent struggle to bring about a major transformation of American society - are as vital and timely as ever. The wealth of his writings, both published and unpublished, that constitute his intellectual legacy are now preserved in this authoritative, chronologically arranged, multivolume edition. Faithfully transcribing the texts of his letters, speeches, sermons, student papers, and articles, this edition has no equal." "Volume II begins with King's doctoral work at Boston University and ends with his first year as pastor of the historic Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. It includes papers from his graduate courses and a fully annotated text of his dissertation. There is correspondence with people King knew in his years before graduate school and a transcription of the first known recording of a King sermon. We learn, too, of King's marriage to Coretta Scott." "Accepting the call to serve Dexter, King followed the church's tradition of socially active pastors by becoming involved in voter registration and other issues of social justice. In Montgomery he completed his doctoral work, and he and Coretta Scott began their married life." "King's early papers document the formative experiences of a man whose life and teachings have had a profound influence not only on Americans but on people of all nations."--Jacket
