Beschreibung

This study explores a range of dynamics in state-society relations which are crucial to an understanding of the contemporary world: processes of state formation, collapse and restructuring, all strongly influenced by globalization in its various respects. Particular attention is given to externally orchestrated state restructuring.

'This is an important book that cautions external authorities against subsuming the diversity of situations confronting many developing countries into singular descriptions of failed or collapsed states...Doornbos implores us to understand these different trajectories and to look at the varied possibilities that lie beyond collapse (pp.6-9).' - Robbie Robertson, Development and Change
