This book is based on several talks and papers presented by the author in recent years. It is organized in two parts, the first dealing with an emerging development paradigm, and the second with the imperative for a new international dialogue in topics central to human development such as a peace agenda for the Third World. This book is intended for academics and practitioners with general interest in development and international relations; undergraduates in international relations courses.

Reflections on Human Development explores a new development paradigm whose central focus is human well-being. Increases in income are treated as essential means, but not as the end of development - and not as the sum total of human life. The book discusses development policies and strategies that link economic growth with human lives in various societies. It also analyses the evolution of a new human development index as a far more comprehensive measure of socio-economic progress than the traditional measure of gross national product. For the first time, a political freedom index is presented, too.About the Author:
Mahbub ul Haq, Special Advisor to the Administrator of the United Nations Development Program.
