About this book

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.

About the authors

MARTIN DOORNBOS is Emeritus Professor of Political Science at the Institute of Social Studies, The Hague, The Netherlands, and Visiting Professor of Development Studies at Mbarara University of Science and Technology in Uganda. He has extensively researched on state-society dynamics in Africa and India, with a particular focus on the state-identity nexus.

Reviews

'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
