In considerable detail, Jerven (London School of Economics) looks at how national accounts were developed in Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia. He shows how disaggregated (sectoral) data can provide more insight into economic growth in a country than aggregate GDP ... This book, which includes useful notes, bibliography, and index, is highly recommended for those interested in economic growth and development. (J. E. Weaver, Drake University, CHOICE)
