Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195216040, Hardcover)

Too often, discussions of development lose sight of the most important goal: to better the lives of individuals and families and improve conditions in the developing world. In this vivid photo book, the human face of development work is brought to the fore. Behind the photos, the human style, and the quotes from Bank Group staff and country counterparts are real stories about poverty that depict eighteen projects from around the world where the Bank and its partners have made a demonstrable impact. The stories were researched and written with extensive cooperation from the project and country teams. Photographs were provided by Bank Group staff in the field, in-country photographers, and the Bank Group's archives.

The eighteen different projects are grouped under seven headings: Land, Farms, and Roads; Reforming Schools, Enrolling Kids: The Staff of Life [Hunger and Nutrition]; Citizens as the Doers of Development; Doing Good while Doing Well; One Nation, Two Worlds; and Holistic Development Illustrated. Examples of projects described are: "Morocco: The Difference a Road Makes," "Benin: Food Where There Was None," "Estonia: A Breath of Fresh Air in the Baltic," and "Bolivia: A New Recipe for Attacking Proverty." Other areas profiled include India, Bangladesh, El Salvador, Madagascar, Uganda, Peru, Mali, the Philippines, Argentina, Columbia, and Vietnam.
