Summary "This title was first published in 2000: Up-to-date information on socio-economic issues in contemporary Swaziland is not always readily accessible. This work fills that gap, by including contributions by Swazi scholars, based on recent research. Swaziland is of particular interest because of its culture and development, the special characteristics of small states and regional development in Southern Africa. Swaziland faces some problems found generally in developing areas but others are distinctive. The cultural dimension to development is paid close attention throughout."--Provided by publisher.
