"Coyne is to be congratulated for a book that strongly calls into question the conventional wisdom that we must look first to government to accomplish humanitarian ends." - George Leef, Regulation Magazine "Coyne attempts to explain why conventional approaches to humanitarian aid and longer term economic development have failed miserably ... Recommended." - M. Q. Dao, Choice "Coyne offers a classic neo-liberal economic analysis to explain why the humanitarian project in its current state is doomed." - Zoe Cormack, Times Literary Supplement "Coyne's message is desperately needed within the development community. He develops a systematic theory that enables us to better understand foreign intervention, expertly revealing its application in a wide range of countries over time." - Benjamin Powell, Professor of Economics, Texas Tech University "Insanity has been defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Bringing public choice and Austrian economics to bear, Coyne explains why conventional approaches to humanitarian aid and longer-term economic development have failed miserably - and how to avoid repeating the same mistakes." - William F. Shughart II, J. Fish Smith Professor in Public Choice, Utah State University
