Reforms are gradual in implementation and respectful to past policy fabrics of a society. At the same time, spread of communication technology, global liberalization of the market and peripheral homogenization of cultures have caused tensions in the developing countries. In this book scholars from different countries highlight the reforms and tensions: what has been achieved, what has failed and what is still needed? Experiences from Nigeria, Ghana, Guatemala, South Korea, Taiwan, Zimbabwe and Tanzania are combined with more general observations from around the world."--BOOK JACKET." ;
