""For 60 years the World Bank and the development community have been searching for the secret of prosperity. For both thinkers and doers, this has been an emotional rollercoaster of hope and disappointment, certainty and doubt. In the front seat of this drama were the World Bank's country directors who were responsible for bridging the world of ideas with that of action, the technical with the political. In this book they tell this story from a deeply personal, humble, and engaged perspective. This book is fundamental reading for the next generation of those who take on the quest for development." Ricardo Hausmann, Professor of the Practice of Economic Development John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University In At the Frontlines of Development former World Bank country directors recount their experiences, both as managers of the World Bank's programs in global economic hotspots of the 1990s as well as throughout their careers in development economics. These essays detail, among many stories of development in the 1990s, how China and India lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty, while Russia collapsed; how Bosnia and Herzegovina and Mozambique remade their war-ravaged economies; and how Thailand, Turkey, and Argentina fell into financial crisis. These remarkable stories, told in first-person by the country directors who were there to witness them, provide candid assessments of development in the 1990s-what succeeded, what failed, and what lessons emerged. This book is part of a larger effort undertaken by the World Bank to understand the development experience of the 1990s, an extraordinary eventful decade. Each of the project's three volumes serves a different purpose. Economic Growth in the 1990s provides comprehensive analysis of the decade's development experience, while Development Challenges in the 1990s offers insights on the practical concerns faced by policymakers."
