    Country briefs are usually full of useful statistics and not much else... This series is an exception. Its context is the issues that affect the poor, and, since the poor are the majority in developing countries, the overviews it offers are particularly relevant. New Scientist.

    Possibly the most valuable contribution made by Oxfam's flourishing Country Profiles series is to remind us of the diversities too often obscured by generalisation ... These Country Profiles would add flesh and blood to the austerities of development studies at A-level and beyond. Michael Storm, TES.
