Convention on the Rights of the Child--"National Performance Gaps" (Partha Dasgupta); and (6) The Industrial World--"Beyond Basics" (Peter Adamson). Each commentary is followed by a table profiling world nations in that particular area. The report concludes with a summary of social indicators for less populous countries and a statistical profile of world nations. (HTH)
