Reviews

'The best critique of NGOs as 'Third Sector' institutions available' -- Richard Peet, Professor of Geography, Clark University, author of Geography of Power: The Making of Global Economic Policy (2007) 'This grittily detailed and sophisticated comparison of myriad NGOs in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka makes us all smarter as we try to figure out under exactly what conditions NGO activities undermine or contribute to genuine democratisation anywhere' -- Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War 'At last, we have a theoretically informed and historically grounded account of one of the defining features of the contemporary world - the rise of non-governmental organisations' -- David Lewis, Professor of Social Policy and Development, London School of Economics & Political Science
