Editorial Reviews

"This sober intellectual project is empirically packed and theoretically reflective in its insistence that '[e]ach system should be examined by reference to the structures, agencies, processes, power, and conflicts that are exercised in material provision'. Academics, students and practitioners of peacebuilding should find much of interest and relevance in its book. For me, its key contribution lies in how it debunks a number of central myths about neoliberalism." - Mandy Turner, Peacebuilding
