Summary "Uganda in the 1970s and early 1980s was one of Africa's sadder economic stories. Emerging from civil war, it had to embark on reform in the early to mid-1980s from a position of severe political weakness. Uganda has attempted economic reform based on the IMF/World Bank model. Its willingness to implement the programmes has had much to do with its success. In this study the effects of economic policy at the aggregate level are discussed in detail, but 'snapshot' empirical analyses of responses at the household level, both urban and rural, are also presented."--BOOK JACKET.
