Developing Country Debt and Economic Performance, Volume 3: Country Studies--Indonesia, Korea, Philippines, Turkey is available from the University of Chicago Press for $85. Its editors are Jeffrey D. Sachs, a research associate in the NBER's Program in International Studies and the Galen L. Stone Professor of International Trade at Harvard University, and Susan M. Collins, an NBER faculty research fellow and an associate professor of economics at Harvard who is currently on leave at the Council of Economic Advisers.

This volume includes an introduction by Collins that compares the experiences of all eight debtor countries studies in this NBER project, and in-depth studies of Indonesia, Korea, the Philippines, and Turkey. Each country study is coauthored by an economist teaching in the United States and one living in the debtor country. In addition to detailing the debt crisis in each country, this volume has much new information about the countries' economic development. It should be useful for economists and others interested in development and developing countries.
