How can an underdeveloped country like Indonesia draw on outside resources for its national development without sacrificing its independence? Approaching the problem from the vantage point of the Indonesian elite, this important work explores the complex interactions between domestic political factors and the shaping of foreign policy. To illustrate the ways in which underdevelopment has affected Indonesia's international participation, Professor Weinstein presents a graphic picture of what Indonesia's leaders see when they view the outside world, and he systematically seeks out the sources of

Over the past 20 years, Peru has emerged as a significant fruit and vege. exporter. The U.S. is an important market. This rise in exports was driven by advantages in climate, low prod'n. costs, and preferential trading arrangements. But because many of the same products exported by Peru are grown in the U.S., increased Peruvian exports will continue to affect U.S. growers as well as consumers.

This publication is based on an exceptional event which brought together civil society from the poor countries and OECD experts. The first-hand expertise of civil society is a priceless asset for understanding the everyday effects of economic change. It emerges from this book that globalisation can have a positive impact in poor countries, but only if policies encouraging a more equitable distribution of human and physical resources are adopted. Furthermore, countries in which infrastructures and skills are underdeveloped will need to continue protecting vulnerable sectors and communities, but

In many developing countries, where the land market remains underdeveloped and the land governance framework is weak, systemic policy and institutional reforms are needed to bring security, efficiency and transparency to the process of business access to land. Land policy reform is challenging, politically, institutionally and technically. It must balance business, social and environmental imperatives to succeed. Empirical evidence suggests that a pragmatic approach taking
