Reviews

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. This book is a much-needed political economy of NGOs and development in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka that perfectly combines conceptual sophistication with careful empirical analysis, anchoring its understanding of NGOs firmly to the forces of capitalist development and the neo-liberal restructuring of the state. -- David Lewis, Professor of Social Policy and Development, London School of Economics & Political Science Jude Fernando's notable achievement here is to push us to be a lot more nuanced when we join in the intense debate about the value of non-governmental organizations. His 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 democratization anywhere. This is a fine and timely book. -- Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War The best critique of NGOs as 'Third Sector' institutions available. Jude Fernando exposes the ideology behind the supposedly beneficial role played by NGOs in development, using the cases of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Well written and trenchantly critical, this is a superb book. -- Richard Peet, Professor of Geography, Clark University, author of Geography of Power: The Making of Global Economic Policy (2007)
