Forty-seven course outlines and reading lists about manpower development are presented. They reflect the diversity of academic programs which deal with manpower policies and programs in economics, sociology, industrial and labor relations, urban studies and urban planning, public administration, business and management, and social work. Courses offered at undergraduate and graduate levels are included, although more concentrated attention is paid to manpower and employment issues in specialized graduate programs.
