Taking his cue from the record of decades of frustrating and ineffective modernization, Professor Hanson focuses his work on the need for developing countries to create organizational and administrative infrastructure that can promote and support effective policy reforms. Columbia and Venezuela are interesting not only because they adjoin each other, but also because during the late 1960s they initiated serious reform efforts designed to enhance administrative developments in public education. That each country undertook its reforms in a quite different political and historical context, with strikingly different results, makes the study quite fascinating and useful.
