In these lectures Barbara Ward analyzes the origins and nature of the present predicament of underdeveloped countries that are facing a double challenge - they face an enormous challenge of change and an equally vast challenge of choice.  She suggests how the West might most effectively assist them to achieve their aspirations.

The original publication of The Rich Nations and The Poor Nations is out of print.  The complete lectures can be found in More Lost Massey Lectures published by House of Anansi.
